Do you work in or alongside the justice system in youth, child safety or family violence spaces? Or do you have an interest, knowledge or experience of the justice system?
Join us for a morning of conversation about youth justice and domestic and family violence.
Connect and share… or just listen. Everyone is welcome to attend, and morning tea will be provided.
Wednesday 22 November
Burnie Surf Life Saving Club
9:30am to 12:30pm
Domestic and Family Violence – Lived Experience, Prevention and Education (9:30am to 11:00am)
We will be joined by lived experience advocate Taylor Woodward. Taylor will be talking about how we can make sure we hear lived experience and community voice. How can we recognise our own biases, so this can support us in our work? Dr Carmel Hobbs will join us for a conversation exploring how our community could support young people with information and knowledge about intimate partner violence and where to seek help if they need it.
Morning Tea and Networking (11:00am to 11:30am)
Join us for morning tea to connect and share information.
Young People and the Justice System (11:30am to 12:30pm)
In 2021 – 2022 a Justice working group formed. It met to discuss prevention and early intervention activities that promote belonging and dignity. Join us to continue the conversation about the youth justice system in our community. During this conversation, we will look at the conditions that would support collective work in this space.
Note: We will aim to provide a safe space for participants, however this space may not be suitable for everyone with lived experience (especially people who are currently in the system as this could create conflicts for you in seeking legal supports).
