Kei ngā wai kōrero huri noa, tēnā koutou katoa. He kaupapa akoako kei te puta i a Ara Poutama Aotearoa mā ngā mauhere i Pāremoremo, kia whiwhi mahi ai inā puta ai rātou i te herehere. Heoi o ngā mauhere e ono rau, e waru tekau te nui i taua whare herehere, e rua ōrau noa iho o rātou, ka whiwhi mahi.

E ai ki tētahi mauhere kua whakapakari ake āna mahi peita i raro i ngā kaupapa whakangungu a Ara Poutama Aotearoa.

“It's just slowly getting better and better I don't know how to explain it it’s just needing more time being more patient, focussing on details and that,” hei tā tētahi mauhere.

E waru mano mauhere te nui ki roto i ngā whare herehere huri noa i te motu ā e rima tekau ma iwa ōrau te nui o rātou e whakangungu ana i ngā momo mahi ā rehe.

 “I'm trying to learn some skills to you know get my own business out there on the outside, own my own business,” hei tā tētahi atu mauhere.

E iwa tekau ōrau te nui o ngā mauhere ki roto i tēnei whare herehere e whakangungu ana i ngā momo mahi ā rehe. Heoi e rua tekau paihēneti noa iho te nui o ngā mauhere ka whiwhi mahi ki te hapori hei te otinga o a rātou whinga.

Hei tā te Tumuwhakarae o Northern Regional Corrections a Jeanette Burns, “Upon release they're small numbers at the moment, around probably 2 percent at the moment.”

Ka whai wāhi atu te hapori pakihi o Tāmaki Makaurau kia uru atu ki roto i tēnei whare herehere hei ako i ngā mahi whakarite a ngā mauhere mo te mahi a te otinga o a rātou whiunga. Heoi he uaua pea te whiwhi mahi ma ētahi mauhere.

E ai kit e kai whakahaere a RMTS a Brenda Frederick, “If we're going for drivers, anyone that’s got a serious criminal record for child abuse or anything like that because they have to go through a police vetting so of course that comes up against them, serious fraud is another major one.”

Kei te hiahia tonu te kamupene a Brenda ki te tuku mahi ki ngā mauhere. Otira kei te āki a Ara Poutama Aotearoa i ngā kamupene kia tuku mahi tonu ki ngā mauhere.
