04-05 of 2005, which deals with prison organization and the social reintegration of prisoners, contains provisions related to prisoners who have minor children. Paragraph 6 of article 16 allows for the postponement of carrying out a prison term against a convicted person for the benefit of a minor child if the other spouse is also the main direction of development of preschool children of GEF prison.
The prison is to provide child care services and facilities with specially trained staff. As of 2011 only one prison for women had a child care facility, however. Australia Each of Australia’s six states and two mainland territories apply their own legislative frameworks in relation to the correctional facilities that they manage. Provision is made in the policies or legislation of all of these states and territories for the accommodation of children with their mother in prison. Assessment processes for determining the placement of a child in a custodial environment should include appropriate input from the relevant external agencies. The accommodation for primary care givers and their children should, wherever possible be domestic rather than custodial.
While prisoners are responsible for the care of their children living in the prison, the Administering Department should take reasonable steps to ensure a safe environment for children. Information on the age limits and numbers of places available for children to reside with their mothers in prison in each state and territory is provided below. Female detainees who are the caregivers of children up to the age of four years or who are pregnant may participate in the Women and Children Program. Following approval, children are placed with their caregiver in a women’s cottage at the prison.
