The Cadell Training Centre will be one of several correctional facilities in SA to receive the first of a series of rehabilitation programs delivered by the Port Adelaide Football Club. The ‘Wellbeing and Resilience program’ was officially launched on Tuesday this week, and is expected to have around 200 prisoners take part. PAFC’s ‘Power Community Ltd’ were awarded a $40,000 grant to run the program, which was developed in partnership with the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute. The key modules of the program will be delivered by PAFC staff and players, and include positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning, achievement, optimism, physical activity, nutrition and sleep, with the hopes of reducing the likelihood of re-offense.
