The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing Foundation Ltd, incorporated on 30 October 2009, is a national, Indigenous-controlled, not-for-profit organisation established to support community-based healing initiatives to address the traumatic legacy of colonisation, forced removals and other past government policies.
In working towards this goal, the Foundation will focus its interests on the following three areas:
Capacity Building – identifying and supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander healing initiatives, at the community level and in response to community needs, by providing funding and capacity development;
Healing Promotion, Education and Training – facilitating the promotion and education of healing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their communities, including skills training in the prevention and treatment of trauma, and fostering a supportive public environment for healing;
Research & Evaluation – contributing to an evidence base for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander healing through community-driven and culturally-appropriate research and evaluation.
