Extra money for NAAJA to provide early intervention to support Indigenous youth in the NT

Date posted: 10 April 2013

The North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) will receive an extra $338,000 from the Australian Government to provide early intervention services to Indigenous youth in the Top End of the Northern Territory.

‘This funding will help provide services to young people, including those in remote communities for the next 18 months,' Attorney-General, Mark Dreyfus QC said.

‘The funding will support early intervention services and case management to Indigenous youth entering the criminal justice system and aim to ensure the first time they enter the criminal justice system is also the last time.'

During a visit to Darwin, Mr Dreyfus congratulated NAAJA on its fortieth anniversary.

‘After forty years of dedication and effort, NAAJA continues to deliver high quality and culturally appropriate Indigenous legal and justice services to the Top End of the Northern Territory,' Mr Dreyfus said.

Services provided by NAAJA include:
