On 14 September 2015 the Healing Foundation launched the Healing Portal, a joint project with Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet. This is the first portal bringing together information about what is working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander healing in one accessible online resource.
So much positive work is taking place around the country to heal our Stolen Generations, their descendants and everyone affected by colonisation and past government policies but because this work spans many sectors and locations, it hasn’t been easy for people to share their knowledge, until now.
The Healing Portal allows individuals, organisations, governments and communities to learn from best practice healing initiatives, share tools and resources and work together to develop healing opportunities in our communities.
It provides culturally appropriate information and the latest research on topics such as trauma, Stolen Generations, children and young people, men’s and women’s healing, and education, training and employment.
