Youth Off The Streets, a non-Government organisation in New South Wales (NSW), has secured federal Government funding to deliver programs that encourage young Indigenous people in the community of Griffith to develop healthy relationships without violence.
'Youth off the Streets will deliver a range of programs including camps for young males at risk of becoming perpetrators, organising social and engagement activities with Elders as well as establish a local Youth Advisory Group and Domestic and Family Violence Committee,' said Senator for NSW, Ursula Stephens.
Youth Off The Streets Founder and CEO, Father Chris Riley, welcomed the grant.
'The funding will deliver an awareness program about domestic and family abuse to the community of Griffith and be invaluable in preventing the cycle of abuse experienced by young women,' he said.
