We use a trauma- and evidence-informed approach to support children whose parents are in contact with the criminal justice system.
Welcome to the Magnolia Project. We are an independent group of professionals and members of the community. While most of us are in Australia, we also have supporters and friends around the world. The Magnolia Project is committed to supporting a range of new initiatives and programs to promote trauma-informed and compassionate criminal justice policies and practices. We know that current responses to crime are often both expensive and ineffective. Sometimes simple opportunities to work more effectively are overlooked or under-used.
The magnolia flower represents a love for nature, nobility, perseverance, and dignity. Soft and subtle in colour yet strong in appearance, it is symbolic of the qualities that people need to live healthy, happy, and law-abiding lives.
We acknowledge the Kaurna and Peramangk people as the traditional owners on the unceded land on which we work. The Magnolia Project pays its respects to their Elders past and present. We also acknowledge that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still important to the living Kaurna and Peramangk people today.
