Vicki Dunne has a disturbing media release on Joy Burch announcing the juvenile inmates of Bimberi are the “final point” of the youth justice system:
“Joy Burch either doesn’t see rehabilitation for Bimberi residents as a priority, or believes they’re beyond any help to turn their lives around,” Mrs Dunne said.
“This is disappointing and worrying to hear from the Minister meant to advocate on their behalf.
“Bimberi should not be ‘the final point’ for these vulnerable young people. It should be a place to rehabilitate them, educate them, give them life skills, and prepare them for a new and productive life in the community.
