Thanks for your support!
Following the recent events and widespread/global coverage of the Black Lives Matter movement, the organisation has been in receipt of many donations and messages of support for the work we do for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and their families in Queensland.
For this we are very grateful and would like to sincerely thank each individual donor.
Your kind contribution will be utilised in the following ways:
- Care packages for clients in our Throughcare program which assists clients coming out of the criminal justice system to re-integrate into mainstream society – examples of items in a package include food items and clothing;
- Community Legal education services – creating awareness and education programs for our community across the state covering topical issues faced in each region and informing the community of their rights within the criminal justice system;
- Public sector monitoring services – monitoring the progress of implementation of the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody as well as ongoing Deaths in custody matters;
- Other day to day case costs and client support services provided by our offices across the state.
A full accounting for the utilisation of funds will be posted online at the end of the financial year 2020/2021.
Thank you again for your generous support.
Chief Executive Officer
