Koori intensive bail support program

 

Overview

The Koori intensive bail support program is for young Koori people from the adult justice system and the children's court (on deferral of sentence status) who are at high risk of breaching bail and/or re-offending, and are deemed likely to be remanded in custody.

The program aims to target the over representation of Indigenous young people on remand, by providing intensive support for them and their families.

The program currently operates in three regions in Victoria.
