Aboriginal Family Wellbeing and Violence Prevention
The NSW Health Aboriginal Family Health Framework supports community wellbeing and the promotion of healing and culturally safe services for Aboriginal families and communities.
The Aboriginal Family Wellbeing and Violence Prevention Coordinator works in partnership with Aboriginal people and our communities to work towards safer communities and Aboriginal people living healthy lives, free of family violence.
The focus is on prevention, early intervention and community development for Aboriginal family wellbeing, culture and healing.
The Aboriginal Family Wellbeing and Violence Prevention Coordinator assists with:
- coordinating community awareness and networking initiatives between both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities and organisations with a focus on family and domestic violence, child protection and sexual assault
- developing culturally appropriate resources and education initiatives
- developing Aboriginal workforce through education initiatives to improve responses to family violence in Aboriginal communities
- engaging and collaborating with Aboriginal communities’ responses to family and domestic violence, child protection and sexual assault.
