Aboriginal Reintegration and Transition Program (Ngudjoong Billa)
The Aboriginal Reintegration and Transition Program is an initiative to provide intensive support for Aboriginal young people after they leave custody or community supervision.
What is the program?
The Aboriginal Reintegration and Transition Program (Ngudjoong Billa) aims to build resilience and wellbeing, and reduce the risk of re-offending. The key focus of the program is on building cultural identity by strengthening connections to Country and family.
The Ngudjoong Billa program is an Aboriginal Justice Reintegration Program delivered in partnership with Youth Justice NSW. It provides additional support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people within the Shoalhaven region who are currently in the Youth Justice system.
The program encompasses a cultural support and education component while focusing on the social difficulties young people encounter. It aims to help them successfully reintegrate into the community and prevent re-offending.
Who provides the service?
The program in the Shoalhaven and Far South Coast areas is delivered by the South Coast Medical Services Aboriginal Corporation.
