The Baggarrook program is designed to support highly vulnerable Aboriginal women as they transition from prison. The program involves participation and support provided by VALS and a number of allied organisations as well and the DHHS and Corrections Victoria. Each participant is provided with transitional housing, and a model of holistic support.
The program is designed with acknowledgment given to the significant and complex needs of Aboriginal women transitioning from prison, and is culturally safe, co-designed by VALS and the program partners.

“The Baggarrook program is open to all women and welcomes trans and gender diverse, non-binary, sistergirls, brotherboys, intersex and two spirit queer folk who identify as women and feel comfortable accessing a women’s housing service.”
