Project
This project addresses a gap in our knowledge of how urban and regional ACCOs are responding to complex health and social challenges confronting Aboriginal communities due to COVID-19 and to safeguard the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal populations throughout the global pandemic.
Project
This project aims to investigate the unique approaches used by Aboriginal community controlled organisations to enable community ownership of holistic health and social programs in complex community settings. Focusing on a close analysis of regional south eastern NSW, the research will produce a robust theorisation of a place based model for Aboriginal community-led solutions to health and social issues.This will be inclusive of innovative mechanisms for the transfer and sharing of learnings to other locations. Utilising a Indigenist research methodology and a community based participatory action research approach, the Aboriginal led investigator team will work in close partnership with Aboriginal community organisations in NSW, WA and Qld.
Project
First Response aims to investigate how the primary healthcare workforce can be supported to integrate culturally safe trauma-informed care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who have experienced violence. This project responds to recommendations for trauma-informed care within healthcare settings for women who have experienced violence, but also to women who have expressed a desire to seek support in healthcare settings rather than from the police or frontline services.
