The objectives of the Healing Service are to provide and observe:

We acknowledge the need to advocate on behalf of, educate and work with individuals, families and the broader community in their search for healing.

Our Principles

  • Recognizing and understanding who we are as Aboriginal people and the legacy we have inherited from Australia’s past history of colonial violence and dispossession.
  • Cultural integrity, respect, safety and connectedness within Aboriginal and mainstream services.
  • Safety and security for victims of violence.
  • Strong community relationships and positive role models.
  • Shared responsibilities – assisting victims and perpetrators on their healing journey so they can participate fully in life and community.
  • Respect for self and others.
  • Promoting emotional and social health and wellbeing.
  • No violence – in the home, in the family, in the community or in the workplace.
