National Reconciliation Week begins today and its brutal to note that, in the housing space, Aboriginal Victorians continue to face extreme disadvantage.
Around one in five Aboriginal households in Victoria live in social housing compared to one in 50 in the general population.
CHIA Vic is currently working on a project to ensure the community housing sector is culturally safe for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Stay tuned for details.
In the meantime, a great resource for gaining a glimpse into what life looks from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspective can be found here, at Reconciliation Australia’s Share Our Pride website.
