Where we are up to 

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) continues its efforts to embed respect for Aboriginal rights within justice agencies, and other public agencies.

'Aboriginal cultural rights in youth justice centres' is a joint report by the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) and the Commission for Children and Young People (CCYP). Recommendations from the report have been accepted by Youth Justice within the Department of Justice and Community Safety. Youth Justice continue to provide regular updates on implementation progress directly to VEOHRC and CCYP. To access a copy of the report, visit the VEOHRC (External link) website.

Further, VEOHRC continues to advocate for enhanced cultural rights for Aboriginal people. More recently, VEOHRC made a submission to the Royal Commission into Victoria's Mental Health System and intervention into the coronial inquest into the death of Tanya Day, a respected Aboriginal woman. To access findings handed down and published by the Coroner, visit the Coroner's Court of Victoria (External link) website.
