Life skills after prison

Seeds of Affinity support women with the lived experience of prison to re-integrate into their communities.

The Learning Changes Lives Foundation supports Seeds of Affinity, who offer a range of women-centred and peer-led programs to support women transitioning from prison back in their communities. Many of the women Seeds of Affinity support are vulnerable and have significant and ongoing experiences of trauma.

Learning programs include life skills in cooking, budgeting, health and wellbeing, as well as pathways to employment programs that build technology, hospitality and business skills through a social enterprise.

Women completing Seeds of Affinity learning programs often go on to complete formal vocational education courses having developed their confidence and communication skills in safe, accepting and supported learning environment, enhancing their employment and therefore life opportunities.
