Malpa juvenile justice program

 

Overview

The Malpa juvenile justice program, run by Malpa, was created in response to the Noetic Solutions' report A strategic review of the New South Wales juvenile justice system. This program examines ways to support young Indigenous people when they return to community life and find ways to help them build a constructive future. The Malpa juvenile justice program is run in the Northern Territory (NT) and Queensland (Qld). In the NT, this program includes a working group that travels to Darwin, Alice Springs, and Berrimah to review three projects (Prisoner support, Council of Elders, and Respected persons and prisoner support officer programs). In Qld, the Malpa juvenile justice program will examine the Prevention and justice support through care program and the Prisoner support and return home schemes run in Brisbane, Rockhampton, Townsville, and Cairns.
