The purpose of this report is to develop a greater understanding of the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families in the ACT. The report, commissioned by Marymead Child and Family Centre, will inform the development of an Indigenous family support program. It will present a review of relevant family support research literature and existing data and program information. Interviews will be conducted with key stakeholders such as Indigenous communities, Indigenous families and key agencies to identify the range of needs and possible support interventions for Indigenous families. To ensure that this new service is culturally appropriate the project will be guided by an Indigenous project officer.
