Welcome to ACSO

In the last 3 decades, we have grown from a small organisation providing a halfway house for ex-prisoners to becoming a leading provider in forensic services in Australia.  Our vision is to create a safe and inclusive community freed of crime and prison.  Our growth is testament to our ethos, ‘create another chance’ and how we go about doing it portrays our values.

We help people transition from prison, assist them in the community to stop them from re-offending and divert others from committing crime in the first place.  We offer innovative services responding to unemployment, mental illness, disability, homelessness, substance use and offending behaviour.

These services are delivered through our ‘wrap around’ service delivery model that integrates our forensic residential, clinical care, disability and mental health case coordination and employment services to achieve better outcomes for our clients and the communities we serve.
