Murri Watch

Since our establishment in 1991 in response to the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, Murri Watch has delivered a range of integrated services and supports to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Queensland. We are a strong and proud Aboriginal community controlled organisation with a long history of preventing contact with the justice system and supporting our communities.

Who are we?

"At Murri Watch, we know that when Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are in control to design and deliver the solutions that this leads to better outcomes for our communities. The Just Futures grant will support Murri Watch to deliver the tailored, culturally strong supports that our young people need to get their lives on track."

Ken Georgetown, CEO Murri Watch


What are we doing?

Murri Watch Youth Hub Precinct

Since 2020, Murri Watch has been working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people experiencing homelessness and key partners to design a culturally-centred, trauma-informed service delivery model for young people. With the support of a Just Futures grant, Murri Watch will deliver our innovative service delivery model to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people experiencing homelessness in the Brisbane CBD area. This support will enable Murri Watch to test and refine the service delivery model in partnership with young people as service users, in order to support the expansion of the model into other areas of high need.
