Current Research Projects

ARC Linkage LP140100329: A Future Beyond the Wall: Improving Post-release Employment Outcomes for People Leaving Prison 
CIs Baldry, Dowse, Bright, Cale, (UNSW), Graffam, Day, MacGillivray (Deakin) POs DCS NSW, DCS ACT, ACEA, WISE, Breakout, ACSO.

ARC Linkage LP140100429 Positive life pathways for vulnerable adolescents: The role of a life management program approach
CIs Nathan, Ferry, Hayen. Baldry, Rawstone, PO Noffs Foundation.

This project is led by Dr Sally Nathan and examines the outcomes for young people undertaking a life managament program to overcome drug use and involvement in the criminal justice system

Evaluation of program for Young People Transitioning from Out of Home Care

This evaluation is led by AHURI and is assessing the processes and outcomes of a program for young people involved in transition from OOHC aimed at connecting them with further education and employment. 

Indigenous Australians with mental health disorders and cognitive disability in the criminal justice system
Eileen Baldry, Patrick Lionel Dodson, Leanne Margaret Dowse, Devon Tilford Indig, Julian Norman Trollor. ARC Linkage Projects, LP100200096 (2010-2013).

High rates of Indigenous Australians with mental health disorders and cognitive disabilities in the criminal justice system are evidenced in a current ARC Linkage project. This project moves into new territory by extending Indigenous specific data and gathering qualitative information to develop a comprehensive picture of the coalescence of multiple diagnoses, heightened vulnerabilities, complex support needs and simultaneous interventions for Indigenous persons. Comparative analysis with Indigenous and non-Indigenous peers will identify points of difference. Experiences and opinions of this group and specialist support and community leaders will be gathered to identify appropriate conceptualisations and interventions.

Comparative Youth Penaility Project
CIs Chris Cunneen, Eileen Baldry, David Brown, Melanie Schwartz; PI Barry Goldson (Liverpool Uni UK) ARC Discovery DP130100184.

This project is a comparative Australian and United Kingdom investigation of penal policy and the punishment of juvenile offenders. The research analyses the changing approaches to juvenile incarceration, particularly in the context of perceived effects on crime and the substantial public and social costs of incarceration.

Working from the ground up: A participatory approach to community regeneration in public housing neighbourhoods
Judith Leslie Irwin, Eileen Baldry, Tony Vinson, Susan Goodwin.

This ARC Linkage project LP0882776 (2008-2012) brings together The University of Sydney, The University of New South Wales, TAFE, NSW Health and Housing NSW as partners. It is identifying and trialing ways of working with communities that can bring about sustainable changes in social housing estates. Using an action research approach, the project is generating new knowledge about and models of community regeneration.

Social and cultural resilience and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal mothers (SCREAM) in prison
Professor Elizabeth Sullivan, Dr Juanita Sherwood, Professor Eileen Baldry, Professor Tony Butler, Dr Michael Levy, Dr Devon Indig. NHMRC Project 630653 (2010 –2013).

The SCREAM project will look at Indigenous women incarcerated in New South Wales (NSW) and Western Australia (WA). Specifically SCREAM will look at ways to address health inequalities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous incarcerated mothers, female carers and mothers in the community. SCREAM aims to involve Aboriginal women and a broad range of other stakeholders in identifying practical steps to reduce these inequalities. The SCREAM project team is based at the Perinatal and Reproductive Epidemiology Research Unit (PRERU) at the University of New South Wales in collaboration with Curtin University, Western Australia.


Recently Completed Projects

The Prison Project: Penal culture and the re-invention of the prison in Australia
Christopher Cunneen, Eileen Baldry, David Brown, Mark Brown, Alexander Steel, ARC Discovery Project DP0877 331 (2008-2011).

Imprisonment rates have grown dramatically across all Australian jurisdictions over the last 20 years, although the growth has been somewhat uneven between States and Territories. ‘Penal culture' refers to the law, policy and practice which frames the use of imprisonment throughout the states and territories of Australia, and to the broad system of meanings, beliefs, ideas and symbols through which people understand and make sense of the prison. The purpose of the Prison Project is to examine developments that have led to a re-emergence of imprisonment as a frontline criminal justice strategy.

Mental health frequent presenters project
Eileen Baldry and Leanne Dowse, NSW Department of Health Research Grant (2010/2011).

This project is delivering a set of linked data and analyses which identify the number and characteristics of persons who are frequent presenters to mental health, police and ambulance services, in order to allow the development of appropriate service models for this group.

Lifecourse institutional costs of homelessness for vulnerable groups
Eileen Baldry and Leanne Dowse. Funded by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA)/National Homelessness Research Grant (2010/11).

This project uses existing merged data on a cohort of individuals with mental health, cognitive disability and complex needs including homelessness who have been in prison in NSW. It aims to determine the lifelong costs to the person, government and community of addressing (or not) the needs of these most vulnerable homeless persons.
