Business Prison industries

Does your local business, community group or someone you know need assistance? The Department of Corrective Services' prison industries may be able to help.

Prison industries produce 80% of all clothing, food and textiles for use within the prisons, contributing to the Department's commitment to self-sustainability.

Prison industries can partner with your local business to:

  • provide opportunities to compete with imports
  • provide access to export opportunities and prevent manufacturing from going offshore
  • provide labour
  • help it become a small player in dominant or growing industries, where there is already a high degree of competition
  • help with start-up opportunities.

Prison industries also take on contracts from external and charitable organisations, however, only accept work that does not threaten WA or regional businesses.

Recently, we have helped to build items such as disability access ramps, lounges for Princess Margaret Hospital, study desks and bicycles for disadvantaged children.
