Our service is committed to supporting the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander carers, families and community.
Across the whole of our service, we work collaboratively with local service providers and Elders to be mindful of cultural needs.
Some of the things we do involve:
Working with culturally safe services
Educating our own staff on supporting families with different cultural needs
Providing advice on availability of services including what they can do and any costs involved
Hosting an annual Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander retreat to share information and give carers a break.
Alfred Health Carer Services acknowledges the people of the Kulin Nation who are the custodians of the land and waters, and pay our respects to Elders past and present.
