SNAICC provides training to support strong and vibrant service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. Our training helps to strengthen families, promote their stability and enhance the lives of children.

We hold workshops to build the capacity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child and family services, to build confidence in using our resources, and to develop cultural competence for other services working with our communities.

This team commenced work in late 2011, building on the strong history of SNAICC’s policy, advocacy and resource development work. We continue to develop and expand our team and our role.

SNAICC’s Through Young Black Eyes Workshop Kit contains a comprehensive set of resources to assist communities or organisations to run workshops about family violence, child abuse and neglect, and develop child-safe communities, all of which can be adapted to suit local community needs.

  • Identify future goals and activities they can undertake in relation to addressing family violence, child abuse and neglect in their communities
  • Increase confidence and skills running a workshop using the Through Young Black Eyes Workshop kit, including through:
  • Clarify the aims of their own future workshop/s
