LETTERS: Young men need people's support

I HAVE been involved with the process of making a home at Churchill for young Indigenous males coming out of prison after serving time for minor crimes.

I was invited into the process by the CEO of 5 Bridges and enthusiastically agreed because I believe in the vision of a home where young men could be loved and nurtured and learn new skills.

I find that the fear that Mr Ryder has pushed onto the community reprehensible.

The Churchill community could give to these young Indigenous men a sense of belonging, after all, those same grounds we acknowledge belong to the Indigenous people.

CAPTAIN JO CHANT, Chaplain Ipswich Courts
