Where we are up to 

In August 2022, the Yilam completed a service mapping exercise to understand what steps regions were taking to move towards greater Aboriginal community involvement in Community Correctional Services (CCS), and what opportunities exist to build and strengthen compliance support for Aboriginal people on community-based orders.

This exercise illustrated many positive examples taking place throughout the regions, including:

  • building partnerships and creating referral pathways with local Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs), and
  • creating opportunities for Case Managers to do outreach and service Aboriginal people directly from ACCOs they are working with.
