The Extended Throughcare Program aims to support the successful reintegration of offenders in the ACT returning to the community at the end of their custodial sentence. The Social Policy Research Centre, in partnership with Époque Consulting, undertook a mixed-method evaluation of Extended Throughcare that involved the collection of administrative client data, financial data, and qualitative interview data. The objective of the evaluation was to determine the impact of the Program on clients, including on the risk of re-offending, community integration, social and health outcomes, as well as analysing the financial costs and benefits of the program.
