Who We Are

ReSet service is delivered by a Consortium of four agencies, comprising Centrecare, Wirrpanda Foundation, St. Bartholomew’s House, and led by Wungening Aboriginal Corporation. The consortium has 150 years combined experience delivering a range of community services to WA’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged populations. We have over 40 years combined experience delivering justice programs.

This exciting partnership offers a range of significant benefits including:

  • A holistic approach to service delivery supporting people transitioning into the community.
  • A best practice evidence based adult justice service that is outcome focused.
  • An integrated and coordinated network of quality reintegration services based in East Perth (the North Hub) and in Cannington (the South Hub); and with access to “hot desk” locations across the metropolitan area.
  • A centralised Intake for referrals.

About Wirrpanda Foundation

Wirrpanda Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation aiming to improve the quality of life for Aboriginal Australians across the four pillars of education, employment, health and justice.

A priority of the Foundation is to employ local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander role models who are empowered to build capacity in their own communities.

The main focus of each program is to improve the life outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by targeting areas at specific stages of their lives, and the success of these programs relies heavily on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mentors developing, delivering and managing these programs.

In ReSet the Wirrpanda Foundation supports both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people involved with the criminal justice system.
