Professional Development

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.

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
