This then allows Aboriginal Elders working with the Brahminy team an opportunity to mentor and teach cultural practice which in turn strengthens the young person’s identity.

The Back to culture program also affords the Brahminy Team a proximity to these young people, aiding the team in determining the best course of action for that young person.
