The NDIS and Aboriginal Communities

Back to main resource list

Wherever possible, we recommend you choose cultural safety training that is specific to your location and the knowledge and protocols of Aboriginal communities in your area.

Any online training should be a preface or supplement to face to face training, not a replacement for it. The most effective training needs to focus on the protocols of local communities. Online training is standardised training that isn’t contextualised to local circumstances, and builds no relationships.  Culture is best conveyed face to face, as it has traditionally been for thousands of years.

The Centre for Excellence acknowledges the Tradition Custodians of the land on which we work, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded and this was and always will be Aboriginal land.
We appreciate and celebrate diversity in all its forms. We believe diversity of all kinds makes our teams, services and organisation stronger and more effective.
