Balit Ngulu is a specialised youth program within the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service (VALS) dedicated to providing legal assistance and representation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people. Balit Ngulu means ‘Strong Voice’ in Wurundjeri language. Balit Ngulu was established to ensure that young people had access to culturally appropriate legal representation.
We provide holistic support and case management for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth and children that come into contact with the Justice System. Balit Ngulu aims to provide legal advice and assistance in the areas of youth justice, to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander youth across Melbourne and Greater Shepparton.
