In 2020 CHIA Vic released the Community Housing Aboriginal Cultural Safety Framework, a practical tool to assist community housing organisations to reflect on their practices and adopt strategies and actions to and address housing needs of Aboriginal Victorians. Download the Framework from our website.
Have Your Staff Undertaken Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Training?
CHIA Vic has partnered with the Victorian Aboriginal Community Services Association Ltd (VACSAL) to deliver cultural awareness training in the context of the Community Housing Aboriginal Cultural Safety Framework.
This course will give participants an increased understanding of the historical and cultural events that continue to impact on Aboriginal communities and individuals. It will examine the impact of racism and stereotyping and look at ways to break down barriers to working effectively with Aboriginal organisations and individuals.
Whilst the training does not cover the implementation of the Community Housing Aboriginal Cultural Safety Framework, it will provide participants with a sound base to assist their organisation to begin the process of adopting the Framework.
