Aboriginal Out of Home Care
We coordinate the delivery of a full case management model to our children and young people in care. We recruit, train and support quality Aboriginal people in the foster care role. We provide placement opportunities for Aboriginal children and young people aged from 0 to 18 and for medium, long term or respite care. Our service delivery area falls within the South Western Region of Sydney.
Community Programs Initiatives
Our community programs target Aboriginal young people, families, groups and business. We coordinate programs and initiatives that are culturally significant, create opportunity and benefit Aboriginal people and our community. Many programs are educational focused, support families or community unity. We will continue to implement programs and initiatives that address self esteem, self determination or personal and community development.
We continue to provide an advocacy support role to our community to ensure they are assisted in an appropriate manner. We will advocate in a positive and professional manner on any matters or issues relevant to improving better outcomes for Aboriginal people.
Promoting Community Cultural Awareness
Where appropriate we will ensure that cultural awareness is prevalent within our service model. We will always proudly promote local Aboriginal culture, history and values through the coordination or participation in community events, service promotion, service literature and service delivery. Where possible we will display local culture throughout our service resources and we will support our local artists to ensure local culture remains prominent within our community.
Where possible or appropriate we will continue to seek opportunities to develop key relationships with a variety of groups, services and departments in an effort to provide better outcomes for our clients and community. We will value and respect good partnerships with both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal groups. However, we will always ensure that Aboriginal people or culture is never compromised.
