Deadly Connections aims to create change, improve outcomes and empower Aboriginal people by disrupting cycles of disadvantage, trauma and justice system involvement.

Deadly Connections is a specialist Aboriginal non-profit service. Established in 2018 as a direct community response to address the over-representation of Aboriginal people, families and communities in the justice and out of home care system.


2019 Pitch
Funds raised: $86,000

Deadly Connections was pitching at TFN Sydney to launch its Parents and Bubs service – a locally-run program to support disadvantaged and at-risk Aboriginal parents and families to gain culturally responsive parenting support. The goal is to reduce the risk of child protection intervention and child removal in these communities by empowering Aboriginal parents.
