Barndimalgu court and the Geraldton family and domestic violence project

 

Overview

The Departments of Corrective Services and the Attorney General are working in partnership with the Geraldton Indigenous community to reduce the incidence of family and domestic violence in this part of Western Australia (WA).

The Barndimalgu court and Geraldton family and domestic violence project was established in August 2007 specifically for Indigenous people in Geraldton to help them break the pattern of domestic and family violence. The program aims to address the over-representation of Indigenous people in prison, and the high numbers imprisoned as the result of family and domestic violence related offences.

There are a number of program components:

The project is supported by the Geraldton Aboriginal Justice Agreement local justice forum, which provides a link between the Geraldton Aboriginal community and the Departments of the Attorney General and Corrective Services.
