Domestic violence help
in your region
With cooperation and support from our communities, the Olabud Doogethu journey is to provide a better future for our country men and women. We want to help our mob develop effective leadership and cultural cohesion by designing, delivering, assisting or supporting programs that build stronger families, improve our quality of life, and champion our proud heritage.
By diverting resources away from our overcrowded prison system, we can invest in our future – our children. The traditional judicial system has failed us, and it continues to let us down. We must manage this problem ourselves. The Aboriginal way.
Together, we can implement community-driven initiatives for early intervention. Schemes that rehabilitate our young people and families while cultivating stronger bonds within the community to help all of us live happier, more fulfilled lives.
