Who Are We

Prisoners Aid and Rehabilitation Services originated in Dunedin in the 1880’s.

This makes PARS one of the oldest social services in New Zealand. All PARS Services in New Zealand are separate entities, although all have similar missions and goals.

Manawatu PARS was established in 1959 and celebrated sixty years of prisoner reintegration in May 2019.
