Sisters Inside has offices in Brisbane and Townsville.
We aim to provide services which support criminalised women and girls and their children to address their many different needs. We provide services in all women’s prisons in Queensland. We also work with women, girls and their children post-release in the community.
Our Brisbane office offers a wide variety of programs to women, girls and children throughout South East Queensland. The range of services available in Townsville is more limited, but over time we hope to offer the same variety of programs throughout Northern Queensland.
How we work
Sisters Inside’s staff is very varied, and includes workers with lived prison experience and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers. We work alongside criminalised women, supporting them to address the issues and needs that are most important to them. Wherever possible, Sisters Inside will continue to support each woman for as long as she wants.
Involvement in any of our services or programs is 100% voluntary, and Sisters Inside deeply respects women and children’s privacy.
We have good working relationships with many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-controlled organisations, and are very committed to finding culturally-appropriate services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and families wherever possible.
