Australian Community Support Organisation Ltd
Queensland – Supports people, in custody and beyond
From the organic beginnings of our founder, Stan McCormack the Australian Community Support Organisation (ACSO) has grown to be a long-term partner of choice for government and industry to help break the cycle of people repeatedly entering the justice system because they lack the support to make change.
ACSO work with people at risk of entering or who have already entered the justice system. Our work supports, diverts or reintegrates people through a range of services including mental health, alcohol and other drug treatment, intensive residential support, housing and employment. These services span the entire justice continuum from prevention to rehabilitation. ACSO do not exclude people based on their offending history and are equipped to effectively manage risk alongside government.
