six clients at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC) (three categorised as at-risk youth due to being under 21 years old); and

33 at risk youth (many of whom are in contact with the criminal justice system but have not been incarcerated).

COVID-19 has delayed implementation of the second grant, which will expand the program to non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It also required the mode of delivery to be modified due to new measures and rules around contact with AMC clients, which has necessitated a shift to an online approach. This has delayed delivery of both programs. The online program modules are currently undergoing stringent security and user testing. It is anticipated that the program modules will ‘go live’ in early 2022, ensuring access for all AMC clients.

4. See response to question 3.

5. Worldview Foundation’s two ACT Health Promotion Grants cease on 30 June and 30 August 2022.
