BUILT BY THE COMMUNITY
FOR THE COMMUNITY

Founded by Keenan Mundine and Carly Stanley, both proud First Nations People with lived and professional experience, Deadly Connections is built on their own personal and professional experiences as Aboriginal people and community members.

Our goal is specialist community led solutions to reducing the over representation of First Nation people in child protection and the justice system, through culturally responsive, community centred programs.

As an Aboriginal-led organisation , our roots lie within the communities we work with.

With a lifetime of lived experience in Aboriginal communities, we understand the challenges our people face. We provide the right type of support when needed.

Deadly Connections is a not-for-profit organisation that provides information, referral, advocacy, and support to First Nations communities in Sydney’s inner city and inner west –  particularly those affected by the child protection and justice systems.
