Where we are up to 

An expression of interest process is underway to engage an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation to lead work on developing the preferred residential model.

 

Background

The Aboriginal Justice Caucus and broader community has long expressed the need for a women's residential facility for Aboriginal women in contact with the system to divert further contact with the justice system. Through AJA4 funding was made available to undertake a feasiblity study which will identify the preferred residential model.
