Goals of the project
As part of the national project, a system of support for convicts for a smooth transition to civil life is being created and verified.
The main goal of the project
is to reduce the risks
of social exclusion of individuals
serving a custodial sentence and increase
their competencies to be successful
in the labour market.
Linking care during a sentence and after release respects and supports existing forms of services. The intention is to reduce the risk of a habitual criminal activity and to limit the emergence of possible crisis situations in the vicinity of persons returning from detention.
The main project activity is a resocialization and active integration of citizens serving a custodial sentence in society and the labour market and improvement of their access to social services.
The primary aim of the project is to create better conditions for the fulfillment of the three basic functions of serving a prison sentence:
The protective function, which consists of preventing the commission of further criminal activity and protecting the life, health and property of all citizens;
Resocialization function, i.e. integration of convicts into society after release;
Preventive function, which includes the use of all available forms of penitentiary and post-penitentiary action so that the individual is able to lead a regular life as a citizen without inappropriate behaviour and habits plus, above all, to avoid recidivism.
The recipient is The General directorate of Prison and Court Guard Service. The national project involves ten selected facilities for the the enforcement of custodial sentence from total number of eighteen facilities for the enforcement of custodial sentence and facilities for pretrial detention in Slovakia, as well as the The Central Office for Labour, Social Affairs and The Family through all offices of labor, social affairs and family in Slovakia.
