This submission responds to the 2014-15 Victorian State Budget.

It provides solutions that can stem the growing cost – and increasing harm to people – caused by imprisonment.

Our submission proposes practical programmatic reforms to support people to build pathways to productive lives, reduce crime and strengthen our communities.

It calls on the Victorian Government to invest in three priority areas:

  • ensuring there is a full continuum of diversion in Victoria’s youth justice system;
  • building an effective and well resourced adult criminal justice system; and
  • further developing pathways to participation for people who are disengaged from learning and work.
