Aboriginal Justice Forum Focuses On Covid-19 Recovery

The 57th Aboriginal Justice Forum (AJF) will focus on the impact of COVID-19 on Aboriginal communities and how to help develop a strong, culturally safe response to the pandemic recovery.

The AJF brings together leaders within the Aboriginal community and government to oversee the implementation and development of the Victorian Aboriginal Justice Agreement.

Measures include support for the Stay Deadly in Challenging Times cultural strengthening care package for Aboriginal young people in youth justice, additional support  for legal assistance services, including Aboriginal legal services, to ensure legal support remains available during the pandemic, and the COVID-19 Aboriginal Community Taskforce which has been established to deliver tailored responses to support Aboriginal people, families and communities during this difficult time.
