Submission – Aboriginal Housing Victoria (Criminal Justice)

Home  →  Submissions Library  → Submission – Aboriginal Housing Victoria (Criminal Justice)


Aboriginal Housing Victoria is an Aboriginal community organisation responsible for managing over 1,500 rental properties for Aboriginal and /or Torres Strait Islander people living in Victoria.

“The thesis of this submission is that – without a vast improvement in housing provision for Aboriginal families and former prisoners – rates of remand will continue to rise; rates of recidivism will continue to deteriorate; children will continue to move into child protection as their parents are incarcerated; and the harmful impacts on families of prisoners returning to their communities with unresolved trauma will continue unabated.”
