Abstract

Redfern Kids Connect is a volunteer-based community project running each Saturday morning out of the Redfern Computer Centre in inner-west Sydney, Australia. The project has been running consistently since August 2002. The Redfern-Waterloo suburbs of Sydney are widely considered a centre of urban aboriginal Australia and are often in the political and media spotlights. The area experiences high levels of socio-economic disadvantage and social problems, including high crime rates, high incarceration rates, domestic violence and a lack of extra educational and recreational opportunities for young people.
