Where we are up to 

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

Recommendations from the Aboriginal Cultural Rights in Youth Justice report have been accepted by Youth Justice (within the Department of Justice and Community Safety).

Youth Justice will report regularly to VEOHRC and the Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People on implementation progress. Further, VEOHRC has advocated for enhanced cultural rights though a submission to the Royal Commission into Victoria's Mental Health System and through its intervention into the coronial inquest into the death of a respected Aboriginal woman, in 2019.
