Home  →  Submissions Library  → Submission – Djirra (Child Protection and Criminal Justice)


Djirra is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation delivering holistic, culturally safe, specialist family violence support, legal services and case management, alongside cultural and wellbeing workshops and programs.

This submission makes extensive recommendations to address failures of the criminal justice and child protection systems including: “prioritising preventative measures – and investing in specialist organisations such as Djirra to provide culturally safe specialist services, housing, case management, specialist legal advice and representation – so that our women are supported to escape the cycles established and sustained by the ongoing impacts of colonisation.”
