INVITATION TO ATTEND HEALING FOUNDATION WORKSHOPS

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing Foundation Development Team is working with the Government between May and December 2009 to consult with key organisations and individuals as well as conduct community workshops across Australia to listen to community ideas for an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing Foundation.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing Foundation Development Team invite you to attend community workshops to hear from community organisations about what is required to support the process of healing.

The Development Team Terms of Reference and Membership are available on the Development Team’s website http://www.fahcsia.gov.au/healingfoundation as is a draft schedule of workshop dates and a Discussion Paper prepared by the Development Team. The Discussion Paper articulates some of the issues and questions around the establishment of an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing Foundation.

If you are unable to attend the workshops you have the option of submitting your comments on the establishment of a Healing Foundation via the Development Team’s website.

Please contact Brenda Campe from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing Foundation Development Team Secretariat on 02 6121 4263 or by email healingfoundation@fahcsia.gov.au to confirm your attendance or if you have any questions.
