Where we are up to
The department is on track to meet targets by 2021. Funding has been allocated to the Victim Assistance Programs to recruit 10.4 full-time equivalent (FTE) Koori Engagement Workers across Victoria.
There is at least 1.0 FTE in each Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) region across Victoria enhancing support services available to Aboriginal victims of crime and connecting communities to services available.
These workers are supported by a Koori Network Group that convene quarterly to discuss strategies to engage the Aboriginal community.
