What is next?
The Tiraapendi Wodli Port Adelaide Justice reinvestment project will develop the next iteration of the Action Plan (2019-21), with a focus on strengthening community governance and local decision making, elevating the profile of the Community Hub, and further developing Aboriginal Community Advocates as part of the peer based Aboriginal Families Thrive Program.
What difference will we make?
Aboriginal families will have the ability and confidence to access information, culturally safe services and community supports to improve the stability and wellbeing of their home and family.
Young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander South Australians will be supported to avoid contact with the youth justice system.
