Where we are up to 

This initiative remains ongoing. As funding has not yet been secured, implementation of the Project Plan will need to be placed on hold until further planning with the Sub Committee group and Naalamba Ganbu and Nerrlinggu Yilam can be undertaken.

Justice Human Research and Ethics Committee (JHREC) approval was obtained in early 2020 for activities to ensure the perspectives of Aboriginal people with lived experience of the justice system inform this work. Consultation began but was affected by COVID-19 restrictions.

The consultation approach was revised and will be implemented when restrictions allow. Consultations are also underway with Corrections staff and other internal stakeholders to identify promising practice supporting Aboriginal people with compliance and completion of Community Corrections Orders.
