Koori Strong

Koori Strong 26.04

Warrigal Employment’s Koori Strong program provides support for young people (16-24) who are at risk of, or have had, experience with the judicial system. The program helps to build on community connections and culture, creating a more stable environment for young Aboriginal people.

The overall outcome of Koori Strong is to ensure young Aboriginal people enjoy similar levels of physical, emotional, and social wellbeing as those enjoyed by other Australians.

We take a holistic approach, understanding the challenges and barriers facing young Aboriginal people, and aim to support and assist community members to access employment, housing and other services that may be hindered from involvement in the justice system.
