We can assist with setting up bank accounts, accessing WINZ benefits, health appointments, identifying employment and volunteer opportunities and support with day to day activities.

PARS can visit prisoners whilst in prison to support them with issues that they may be worried about.

In Wellington our staff work in Rimutaka and Arohata prisons. We also provide support through the probation offices in Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt Newtown, Porirua and Paraparaumu.

We also provide support to family/whanau to assist with prison visiting applications, information, and support with any concerns about someone in prison, locally or somewhere else in New Zealand. PARS can provide access to the National Child Travel fund to allow families to maintain contact with a family member in prison outside their home region.

If you are concerned or worried and need support contact us at our local office.


If you or someone you know has been deported from Australia due to offending, PARS can help with support and assistance. Contact your local office of 0800 727 700 for more information.
