On 14 June a series of criminal record fact sheets were launched at Healesville Indigenous Community Services Association, based at Healesville in the beautiful Yarra Valley.

The fact sheets were produced by Woor-Dungin’s Criminal Record Discrimination Project team, in collaboration with our Aboriginal partner organisations, in response to our partners’ requests for plain-language fact sheets to inform members of their communities with a criminal record of their rights and responsibilities under current legislation when it comes to getting a job, joining a board, getting insurance and other situations they might face.

Following the Melbourne launch of the fact sheets in September 2016, a number of Woor-Dungin’s partners have launched or will launch locally branded versions for their respective communities.

You can download and read the Melbourne metro versions of the fact sheets here.
