Listening to the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and children: Celebrating the wins, facing the challenges
This toolkit draws from the expertise of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consultants, practitioners, non-Aboriginal practitioners and Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal organisations. Rather than focusing on why it is difficult to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, their families and communities, it will explore how non-Aboriginal practitioners and services can develop genuine connections with Aboriginal people and communities to create the best conditions for effective service delivery; services based on respect, learning and creating shared understandings.
“Working within the community has changed my life. I feel like I can’t work any other way now and really, this is how we should be working with everybody.” (Program Manager)
