Yarrabi Bamirr

Yarrabi Bamirr, Ngunnawal words for Walk Tall, involves using a family-centric service support model with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to improve life outcomes and reduce or prevent contact with the justice system. The trial involves a range of agencies (including Winnunga Nimmityjah Aboriginal Health and Community Services, Domestic Violence Crisis Service, ACT Policing and Aboriginal Legal Service) working to provide culturally sensitive and intensive support to families.

As part of the program, Justice Reinvestment workers are working together with families to co-design unique family plans to address their goals related to matters such as housing, health, justice, education and employment. Cross-government support is then provided to these families to address their identified needs.

This process will be evaluated by the Australian National University.
