Welcome to Just Reinvest NSW
We’re changing the way we look after our children and our communities. Too many of our children, particularly Aboriginal children are languishing behind bars, sometimes for protracted periods.
Justice reinvestment offers a positive alternative. It reduces crime, builds community capacity, and saves taxpayer’s money. Evidence shows when justice reinvestment is implemented, children and young people have more opportunities and get better outcomes.
In NSW, over half the young people in jail are Aboriginal, at a cost of $652 each day. NSW taxpayers currently spend over $237,000 each year on every young person incarcerated, and costs are increasing.
Just Reinvest NSW is calling on the NSW government to implement justice reinvestment as a matter of urgency.read more
