Event Details

To reflect the importance of Aboriginal cultural considerations in the bail hearing process, the Honorary Justice Office will be delivering Koori Cultural Awareness training to all bail justices from May through to August 2018. 

The programs will be delivered flexibly across Victoria and include key regional hubs including Geelong; Warrnambool; Shepparton; Wangaratta; Morwell; Bairnsdale; Ballarat; Horsham; Bendigo and Mildura. 

This training has been developed to give bail justices a greater knowledge and understanding of the history and justice issues facing Victorian Koori, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. 

The HJO is delighted to introduce Tarina Fanning, currently with the Judicial College as our presenter.  Tarina has an extensive background with the Department of Justice and Regulation; Victoria Police and community agencies. She is a proud Larrakia woman and passionate about sharing cultural awareness.

The training will be interactive and engaging, offering Victorian bail justices an opportunity to reflect on their own experiences with Aboriginal communities. Key learning outcomes include:

  • an insight on the history and relationship between the Aboriginal community and justice system
  • self reflection on Aboriginality as it relates to the bail justice role and current legislation
  • Identifying the broader nature of kinship relationships in the Aboriginal community 
  • Local presenters from key Aboriginal stakeholders in each training location 
  • practical considerations of cultural safety and how to ensure appropriate supports in hearings
  • self reflection on bias 

8.45am registration for a 9.00am start. If you need to travel more than 200Kms and require accommodation, please email bailreform@justice.vic.gov.au to let us know of your request. 

Please identify any dietary or other special requirements we need to know about to ensure a great training experience.
