Jumna wal

 

Overview

The Jumna wal project (Darug for 'we care') started in 2011. Jumna wal provides a place where the stories and experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men on parole can be shared and collated. It is designed to be a safe, welcoming place where these men can feel comfortable and welcomed. The project evolved from the 'revolving door' concept which explored ways to reduce recidivism, the pattern of continually returning to prison when it becomes a safer, more certain place than the outside world.

Jumna wal consists of nine sessions run over nine weeks. The program brings interested participants to the University of Western Sydney's Hawkesbury campus each week and consists of a forum-style session with speakers from relevant organisations such as Housing New South Wales (NSW), CentreLink and alcohol and other drugs centres. The nine sessions include:
