Our submission on residential care for younger people with disability argues that it is not acceptable that Australia’s Aged Care has become the safety net for people of all ages, who have severe disabilities or complex needs and require physical support or nursing care…. The way forward is a diversity of responses and accommodation options to meet different needs and age groups.

The Victorian Interchurch Criminal Justice Taskforce has released this brochure to give a Christian perspective on current issues of punishment, imprisonment and rehabilitation, and to offer effective and just ways to reduce crime and increase community safety.

In a related development, Victorian Church leaders have written to all Members of Parliament, calling for a 'restorative justice' approach to crime and offending, with a focus on prevention of crime, support for victims of crime, diversion from prison, and rehabilitation of offenders.  Click here for a copy of the letter.  

The report by Professor Ruth Webber: 'I was in prison...An Exploration of Catholic Prison Ministry' was launched on 7 October by Msgr Greg Bennet. Follow the link for further material from the launch.  

The 2014 Victorian Government re-tendering of Alcohol and Other Drug and of community mental health servcies Psychiatric has had a major negative impact on services to vulnerable Victorians.  We call on the Victorian Government to re-instate this funding, and to learn the lessons of the tender process. 

Thanks to everyone who helped make our 14 August 2014 Annual Dinner a success – it was the breadth of guests that gave us the atmosphere and the celebration of shared purpose that made the evening so special.
