Our Transport Options Program helps provide transport assistance when clients are being released back into their community within the Pilbara region. This program was set up to help ex-offenders who are having difficulty finding transport back home.
Clients need to notify the Transitional Manager at Roebourne Regional Prison that they require transport home. The Transitional Manager will then refer them onto Pilbara Community Services for Transport Options Program.
Out Transport Options Program staff members will greet the client at the gate to offer support as they leave incarceration.
Location is not a barrier for our TOP staff members. Remote location? No worries we have the 4WD vehicle for that, or even the mail plane if that is required. If it is in the Pilbara we will find a way to get them home and back with their families. The families reactions to having their loved ones returned is beautiful to watch and to be apart of, knowing that this is happening because of the TOPS program that we are apart of.
