From Save the CNS:
To keep the CNS operating, the ALS needs:
►Funding of $500,000 per annum to commence 1 July 2013
►A funding commitment of three - five years
The phone line costs the same to operate per annum as holding two juveniles in detention for one year.

Koori Mail current edition:
.. a funding stand-off between the federal and state governments means the ALS will be forced to cut the CNS at the end of the financial year, which chief legal officer John McKenzie said would impact vulnerable people.
