Listen now: 'Indigenous Youth Throughcare: Corrections to Community'

Hear from the National Aboriginal Australian Agency and the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency about the best-practice model developed for Indigenous Youth Throughcare and its implementation in the Northern Territory. 

In recognition of disproportionately high rates of Indigenous young people in the juvenile justice system, the National Indigenous Australian Agency has enhanced the model of throughcare services (e.g. intensive case management) delivered to this cohort, in order to create a sustainable exit from the justice system. 

The best-practice model – co-designed with service providers, Indigenous stakeholders, and Indigenous young people – recognises the complexity of young people’s offending, history of trauma, and the short time-frames young people are typically detained.
