These projects provide equal opportunities for education, training, employment and life choices. They are run either directly by FISH or in partnership with others. As we do this, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are given opportunities in our society to be valued as positive, healing, and leading contributors to community in connecting people to caring for each other and caring for Country.
If we are to break the cycle of generational trauma, poverty, and engagement in the justice system, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people need to play a leading role in the development of projects and initiatives. This is what we do! The FISH team actively work with a broad cross section of our community to achieve positive outcomes.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are sadly over represented in the justice system in Australia and this is closely associated with a loss of spirit and social cohesion.
FISH is developing initiatives that will work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people currently in contact with the justice system and those at risk of offending to help them light a fire within so they may regain spirit and connection with mind, body, and land.
FISH ran two 10-week pilot Cultural Healing and Awareness Programs at Casuarina Prison for Aboriginal inmates commencing in Sep 2018
