Ramahyuck District Aboriginal Corporation is a Registered Training Organisation and we provide nationally accredited cultural awareness training to staff members of agencies who interact with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients, Ramahyuck staff, and the general community.

The cultural training we provide is a two-day training program which delivers the nationally accredited unit HLTHIR404D Work effectively with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people. Participants have the option of choosing whether or not to undertake the assessment tasks to achieve a Statement of Attainment in the unit. Participants who are issued with a Statement of Attainment can claim credit for the unit in over 200 qualifications ranging from Certificate III to Diploma level.

LOCAL JUSTICE WORKER PROGRAM

The Justice Program seeks to reduce the number of Aboriginal People coming into contact with Police and the Justice System as a result of criminal activities. The target group consists of Aboriginal males/females (18+), which are subject to court orders or are identified as likely candidates for diversion as an alternative to imprisonment. The program also works closely with the local Sheriff’s office to resolve outstanding warrants by means of payment plans, conversion to community work hours or applying for a court hearing to resolve or contest the fines/warrants.

The local Drouin program provides a community work site for clients on corrections orders to complete their hours and we can also offer our clients access to our other programs where appropriate eg:- Men’s group, parenting programs, referrals for D&A counselling, Men’s behavioural change programs and Psych reports/referrals through our Doctors service. If clients need assistance with the court hearings, we can source solicitors on the client’s behalf and assist with the court process where possible.
