Incompro receives grant for Youth Empowerment Project
A project aimed at reducing the number of young Aboriginal people in Northern Adelaide from entering the youth justice system has received a significant funding boost.
InComPro’s Youth Empowerment Project will receive $98,800 as part of the Crime Prevention and Community Safety Grants Program.
InComPro provides a range of culturally respectful programs to Aboriginal people and communities throughout South Australia.
The project will focus on a group of young people known to South Australia Police and will use engagement in sports, recreation, arts and culture alongside case coordination to get young people back on track.
Grants of up to $100,000 were available to programs that seek to prevent crime and reduce youth offending in South Australia.
A multi-agency panel assessed each application, with a focus on projects that can deliver positive results for crime reduction in their communities.
The Youth Empowerment Project aims to increase the protective factors around at-risk Aboriginal young people in Northern Adelaide.
This project will make a real difference to young people in Northern Adelaide who have been identified as at risk.
