Aboriginal Youth Justice Reforms: ‘Our Youth, Our Way’

The inequality of the Victorian youth justice system is systemic for Aboriginal children and young people. In 2021 The Victorian Government released ‘Our Youth, Our Way’, a community inform report with recommendations for the youth justice system to create culturally safe and responsive ways meeting the unique needs of Aboriginal children and young people. Advocate with us for the Victorian government to adopt the report’s recommendations.

Raising the Minimum Age of Criminal Responsibility to 14

Children need to be loved and supported so they can reach their full potential and not locked up. Between 65-70% of children imprisoned under 14 are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. Help us raise the minimum age of criminal culpability from 10 to 14.
