Healing

Welcome to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing portal, an online hub for people working in healing, health, justice, education, employment, child protection, community services and family violence.

The Healing portal is designed to encourage information sharing and collaboration across sectors and locations. It brings together best practice healing initiatives and information about what is working in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities around healing. The portal includes the latest research, reports, case studies, videos and tools from around Australia to enable people to bring trauma informed and healing aware practices into their organisations and communities.

Aboriginal Healing Centre Project

The Aboriginal Healing Centre project aims to develop an Aboriginal Healing Centre in Darwin in the NT that meets the needs of the Larrakia people. A pilot program giving local Aboriginal people the opportunity to take part in activities and workshops that would be conducted in a Healing Centre was undertaken. Feedback from the workshop participants and facilitators and from the community will then be combined to provide a foundation for the potential development of the Aboriginal Healing Centre.

A key aspect of the project is to draw on local Darwin Aboriginal people for feedback on:

  • what healing means
  • what key issues affect the community and how people would like these issues to be addressed.

This project is a partnership between Larrakia Nation and The Healing Foundation.
