Cultural Connections Workshop

Our Cultural Connections Workshop helps child protection practitioners, agency staff and foster carers support Aboriginal children in care through effective cultural planning.

Culture is central to the long-term safety and wellbeing of Aboriginal children and young people. Every Aboriginal child has the right to maintain their cultural identity. Preserving contact with family, kin, community and Country has been shown to help Aboriginal children through psychological and emotional development.

It is a requirement in NSW that all Aboriginal children and young people in out-of-home care must have a Cultural Care Plan and a Cultural Support Plan. Our goal is to assist you to create comprehensive and effective plans, resulting in stronger, healthier and happier children and young people.

All workshops will be conducted over Zoom and run from 8:30am to 4:00pm.

We recommend booking early, as workshops are capped at 20 participants in order to provide our attendees with the most valuable experience. In cases where bookings do not meet the minimum number of 10 participants, unfortunately we are forced to postpone the workshop. In this rare event we will contact participants directly and offer a full refund.

All Cultural Connections Workshops are delivered through the AbSec Learning and Development Centre.
