Building Engagement with First Australian Families in the Mt Druitt Area
LEAD provides Professional Development to community sector workers, primarily across Western Sydney. The community sector is contracted by government agencies to provide services that meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, but many have limited engagement and impact in this community.
To address this challenge, LEAD has worked with Aboriginal organisations to tap into their knowledge and experience, and to facilitate community consultantions. “Building Engagement with First Australian Families in the Mt Druitt Area”, is now available as a resource to support mainstream organisations to improve their understanding and connection with Aboriginal children and families, particularly in the Mt Druitt area.
“Building Engagement with First Australian Families in the Mt Druitt Area” is one outcome of LEAD’s commitment to Aboriginal Cross-Cultural Competence Capacity Building, which forms part of the Communities for Children Mt Druitt project, led by Mission Australia. This project has been funded by the Australia Department of Social Services.
