Connecting Home

 

Description

Connecting Home is a not-for-profit organisation established to replace and build upon the work of the Stolen Generations Victoria Ltd and operates across south eastern Australia.

The service is primarily funded by the Victorian Government to progress the recommendations of the 2003 Victorian Stolen Generations Taskforce, the Bringing them home and the Closing the gap reports and initiatives.

Using person-centred practice, Connecting Home provides a number of programs such as case management and healing and community engagement and offers both individual and facilitated group activities.

Sector development is an important role of Connecting Home and the organistation works closely with existing service systems of the Bringing them home and Link-up programs.

Connecting Home also works with schools through its education program designed to influence school curriculum development, as well as educating both Indigenous and mainstream community agencies and government bodies.

The organisation also has a role in informing government debate and policy development, about the ongoing issues and needs of the Stolen Generations and their family members.
