Where we are up to 

The Court Integrated Services Program (CISP) has five designated Koori case manager roles for locations across Victoria.

Over the past 12 months or so, recruitment to and retention of appropriately qualified Aboriginal staff in these roles has proved challenging. Consequently, Magistrates’ Court Victoria (MCV) engaged an Aboriginal consultancy to provide advice in relation to Koori specific case manager roles and potential changes to policies, processes and practices. A plan to progress identified improvements is currently being formulated.
