The Aboriginal Justice Centre (AJC) provides and coordinates support services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the ACT criminal justice system. AJC represents the views of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, and raises awareness, understanding and knowledge of entitlements and rights to influence improvement in the wellbeing of Indigenous people.
The AJC was developed in order to assist in implementing the recommendations of the 1991 Royal Commission into Aboriginal deaths in custody report. AJC works with all justice agencies including ACT policing, ACT corrective services, victim support, youth sustice, Ngambra Circle Sentencing Court, Human Rights Commission and legal services to improve and coordinate services.
The AJC provides three main types of programs:
