Deadly Jargums Project
The Deadly Tiddas project provides a space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women to connect, grow and develop with one another. The program provides individual case management to women who are at risk or are experiencing domestic and family violence, experiencing financial hardship or are needing support to alleviate the criminogenic risk factors that many First Nations women face. Additionally, the Deadly Tiddas project provides free and accessible weekly women’s groups to meet with other like-minded Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with their own lived experience to encourage conversation, cultural connection and community values.
