Community Justice Group

The Community Justice Group develops strategies within the community for dealing with justice-related issues aimed at decreasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s contact with the justice system.

The CJG supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander victims and offenders at all stages of the legal process, including the provision of sentencing submissions to court, attendance at court and visiting prisons and detention centres. The CJG also provides mediation and referrals to other relevant organisations on Palm Island.

The Coordinator of the CJG plays a major role in networking with these organisations to ensure that justice-related issues impacting on the Palm Island community are addressed collectively with a focus on the development of intervention programs.
