Abstract: Building culturally strong community programs, designed and delivered by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander worldview, the Healing Foundation is improving the wellbeing of our people by: – developing the story of healing by funding healing programs – raising the profile and documenting the importance of culturally strong healing programs through research and evaluation – building leadership and the capacity of communities and workers to deal with trauma through education and training. The initial priorities of the Healing Foundation were established in June 2010. They include: – defining what healing means to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – acknowledging the intergenerational impact of trauma on families and communities – developing links between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous healing models – working with young people to build strong spirits and connections to culture – supporting Stolen Generations survivors – developing programs relevant to men and boys – building on the work women have done to unite and heal families and communities.
