Title on website: Indigenous justice program evaluations. Project B, Offender support and reintegration.
The Australian Government has provided funding to evaluate the effectiveness of Indigenous law and justice programs across five subject areas to identify the best approaches to tackling crime and justice issues and better inform government funding decisions in the future. This report presents the findings of subject area "B", 'Offender support and reintegration'. Eight programs were examined, including the Dthina Yuwali Aboriginal Alcohol and Other Drug Program, for drug-using young offenders; the Local Justice Worker Program, for offenders sentenced to mandated community work in Victoria; the Koori Offender Support and Mentoring Program, for offenders on Community Corrections Orders in Victoria; the Aboriginal Cultural Immersion Program, that promotes cultural identity, self-confidence, and personal responsibility in Victoria; the Marumali Program, for healing and rehabilitation in Victoria; the Koori Cognitive Skills Program, an adaptation of a mainstream cognitive skills program in Victoria; the Roebourne DECCA Program, a work preparation and pre-vocational training program in Western Australia; and the Aboriginal Reconnect Program in Tasmania, that aims to improve health and wellbeing through culture, outdoor recreational activities, and wilderness therapy.
