Where we are up to 

The Shepparton Marram-Ngala Ganbu (MNG) was launched 16 April 2021 at the Shepparton Law Courts. The event was well attended and live streamed for those who could not attend.

Marram-Ngala Ganbu Shepparton currently sits every three weeks and is causing significant delays in next available dates for MNG matters. Further work to identifying Aboriginal children in the current pending matters shows that 49 per cent of the list involves Aboriginal children. MNG has moved to fortnightly sittings as of 1 July 2021. Funding options to employ a Koori Family Support Officer are currently being explored.
