Frankston High St Centre team recognised in Community Work Partnership Awards

29 November 2016

Congratulations to our Frankston High St Centre team for two accolades at the recent Corrections Victoria Community Work Partnership Awards for the best program in Victoria’s south east as well as in a particular project category – ‘projects involving diversity, Indigenous or age of offenders or prisoners’.


The Brotherhood’s Frankston team runs a program in partnership with Corrections Victoria, Frankston North Community Centre and Jesuit Community College, supporting women on corrections orders through the Healthy Body, Healthy Mind program.

Frankston High St Centre Senior Manager, John Catto-Smith says women doing community service on corrections orders gain hospitality skills to help them get work, while healthy lunches are donated to those in need in the local community. ‘It’s a really successful program and we are proud it has been recognised,’ he said.
