Give them a life

not life in prison

Just Reinvest NSW is committed to addressing the overrepresentation of Aboriginal young people in custody.

Build them a

Brighter future

We aim to influence the New South Wales Government to shift spending that has been allocated for prisons towards community-based programs and services that address the factors that contribute to criminal behaviour in young people.

We can unlock the

Pathway to change

Homelessness, child abuse, disability, high-risk drug and alcohol use, poor school attendance, a lack of appropriate services; violence, discrimination and poverty all act as precursors to young people becoming entrenched in the criminal justice system. There issues are difficult for Aboriginal young people to manage without help.

Justice Reinvestment takes money out of prisons and puts it back into communities. It’s a smarter, cost-effective approach to criminal justice.

We aim to convince the New South Wales Government to adopt a Justice Reinvestment approach to Aboriginal young people and their communities.

We simply cannot afford NOT to implement a Justice Reinvestment approach. 

Thank you for your support.
