GVCLC is partnering with the Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project to deliver ‘Haven Connect’, a new youth justice project in Shepparton. This project aims to divert young people away from the criminal justice system and to strengthen their connections to the community.
A youth lawyer and a youth and family worker are based at the Haven safe space in Shepparton, working closely with young people to identify barriers causing offending behaviour and disengagement. This project is funded by the Victorian Legal Services Board Grants Program.
This project is commencing in 2020, check back on this page for updates on the project moving forward.
