About this site

This site is for board and committee members, managers, coordinators,
team leaders and workers in human service organisations.

People in human services organisations will provide more appropriate services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people if they understand Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's history, cultural and social reality.

Here is an A4 flyer you can use to inform staff about the site and the self-study module.

There are three steps to improving services:
1
Improving understanding & cultural competence
2
Seeing the implications for service delivery and community development
3
Improving your service delivery and community development through changes to practice
This web site can help you with the first two steps: improving understanding and cultural competence and
seeing the implications. We wish you well for the third step of changing practice.
