THE REPORT

The Just Reinvest NSW (JRNSW) report, “Redefining Reinvestment – An opportunity for Aboriginal communities and government to co-design justice reinvestment (JR) in NSW” is a landmark report based on research with Aboriginal communities in Bourke, Moree and Mt Druitt.

It conveys their experiences of the criminal justice system and captures their perspectives on ‘reinvestment’ in NSW. The Report invites government to commence a process of co-design, led by those Aboriginal communities where local solutions are already being explored.

THE REINVESTMENT FORUM

On the 3 November 2022, JRNSW is hosting the inaugural Reinvestment Forum, which brings together Aboriginal communities, policymakers, philanthropy, and academia to share their visions on how reinvestment can work, and to develop a plan for co-design.

WHAT IS JUSTICE REINVESTMENT?

Justice reinvestment is a way of reducing Aboriginal incarceration, by implementing strategies that address the drivers into the criminal justice systems, led by the community and informed by data.

These strategies contribute to broader systemic reform in education, health, care and child protection.
