About Us

The Healing Foundation is a national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation that provides a platform to amplify the voices and lived experience of Stolen Generations survivors and their families.

We work with communities to create a place of safety, providing an environment for Stolen Generations survivors and their families to speak for themselves, tell their own stories, and be in charge of their own healing.

We promote trauma-aware, healing-informed practice to help government, policymakers, and workforces understand their role in intergenerational healing.

By addressing unresolved trauma in First Nations communities – trauma that was caused by colonisation and actions like the forced removal of children – we are walking alongside communities on the path to healing.

We are governed by a First Nations Board and Executive and guided in our work by our Stolen Generations and Youth Reference Groups.

Our work honours our First Nations ancestors to ensure our future generations continue to thrive for the next 60,000 years.

The Healing Foundation

Our logo signifies the different countries for our peoples, from salt water to fresh water, rainforest to desert. This is represented by the different colours of the logo. The circles are the journey, pathways and their complexities –reflecting not just individuals but communities and larger groupings. The eight dots surrounding the centre dot represent the Healing Foundation. Cultural elements such as etchings, carvings, and headdresses from across Australia are also shown in our logo.
