- Training provides skills and understanding to support and sustain genuine partnerships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander agencies and non- Indigenous services
The training is designed to build effective partnerships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services and non-Indigenous services.
SNAICC has developed this training with the aim of supporting and sustaining genuine inter-agency partnerships in service delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. As an inter-agency partnership training program, it focuses on genuine relationships between organisations and the processes that support and facilitate those relationships.
While partnerships have long been recognised as important to developing effective and culturally-competent services, many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have had negative experiences of tokenistic relationships labelled as partnerships. This has led to a level of mistrust that governments and mainstream services may use partnerships to ‘tick boxes’ of cultural competence and community engagement, without engaging with the deeper commitment to sustainable relationships and local community empowerment.
Achieving better outcomes requires a shared commitment to building deeper, respectful and more genuine relationships. This training explores this deeper commitment and how it can be realised in practice.
This workshop is designed for:
- Organisational leaders and decision-makers, including managers, CEO’s and senior public servants.
- Community partnership facilitators (for example, organisations leading local family service integration and collaboration initiatives), and
- Consultants and other professionals taking on partnership facilitation and support roles
* No prerequisites.
