Where we are up to 

Yawal Mugadjina Cultural mentoring program commenced in 2018. The program provides Aboriginal people in prison with cultural mentorship from Elders and Respected Persons, to support their transition and reintegration back into their community. Participants also have the opportunity to develop cultural plans with Aboriginal Wellbeing Officers in prison which can assist with their journey out of the system. The Program provides post release support for Aboriginal prisoners through the Local Justice Worker Program. This phase of the program commenced in March 2019.
