How the human services sector can build strong relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers, organisations and communities
Better Chances Forum (BCF) Strengthening Days for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family support and early childhood workers have been held in the Northern Rivers in 2019, 2020 and 2021. Over two years, 110 people have participated in face-to-face events and online workshops.
An important part of the Strengthening Days project is sharing collective feedback from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers with the wider sector about how non-Indigenous services and workers can work more collaboratively alongside Indigenous people, organisations and communities in the most culturally appropriate and supportive way.
This brief includes feedback from 2019/2020 Strengthening Days and builds on a presentation from participants in the first Strengthening Day to over 130 workers and managers at the Regional Better Chances Forum in Lennox Head in June 2019.
The BCF Strengthening Days have been supported by Social Futures, NSW Department of Communities and Justice, YWCA Communities for Children and Northcott, and facilitated by We Al-li.
