Koori offender support and mentoring program

 

Overview

The Koori offender support and mentoring program is a community-based initiative delivered in five communities across Victoria.

Under the program, Koori Elders and Respected Persons play a mentoring role to Koori participants who are completing community-based orders, intensive corrections orders, community corrections treatment orders or parole. To support program participants to successfully complete their orders, mentors provide advice and cultural connection.

The program is a successful collaboration between the Koori community and Victoria's Community Correctional Services, assisting to foster close relationships between mentors and program participants and increase their likelihood of successfully completing their correctional orders.

The Koori offender support and mentoring program operates in the following locations:
