Mervyn winning the bill Armstrong award

We are delighted to announce the winner of the Bill Armstrong AO Human Rights Award is Mervyn Eades!
Mervyn is a Menang/Wilaman man from the Noongar nation and has been recognised for his work in leading the way for prison reform in Western Australia.
Mervyn started Ngalla Maya: Aboriginal Employment Access back in 2014 to provide training, education, mentoring, and skills development for Aboriginal people (initially women) coming out of the prison system.
We became involved with supporting and working with Mervyn and Ngalla Maya a couple of years after it opened.
Ngalla Maya’s ‘Prison to Community Reintegration’ program has helped about 300 people, including men, women and youth find employment after prison and demonstrably reduce recidivism and reoffending behaviour.
