The Commission for Children and Young People has released a report into the use of isolation, separation and lockdowns of young people in Victoria’s youth detention centres. Berry Street CEO Sandie de Wolf AM said she was appalled at the conditions reported.
Berry Street was founded in 1877 by a group of Melbourne women. On International Women's Day, we're celebrating the countless strong women who have been part of our history. Selina Sutherland is just one of them.
