Queensland Healing Strategy

Have Your Say | Dream Big

We are working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders to develop the first ever Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing Strategy.

Healing creates a better future for our children and a world where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and our cultures thrive. Healing is about making spirit feel good. It’s about moving forward with hope for the future, with renewed energy, strength and enthusiasm for life.

The Queensland Healing Strategy is a chance for Queensland to chart a way forward, help heal past hurts and break the cycle of Intergenerational Trauma for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The online engagement process closes on 17 April, 2020. The solutions are already out there in the community – have your say and tell us your stories about healing by completing the survey or making a submission before this date.

Ways to have your say

For individuals:

  • Complete our online survey or download the pdf survey
  • Tell us about your healing initiative or program via the case study template (download the sample)
  • Having a yarn over the phone – email us and we will call you back
  • We encourage your creativity, you can submit a creative piece on what healing means for you, such as poetry, art, images, songs etc  – by filling in the online form.

Read here to learn about how we will use your information.

For organisations:

Submit your creative input

Art, music and other forms of creative expression are cultural ways that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people communicate and convey knowledge about events, beliefs and to teach future generations. Sometimes our creative expressions and the stories behind them say more than can be expressed in a standard survey.

Your creative expression and explanation will be used by The Healing Foundation to help inform the development of the Queensland Healing Strategy.

*To submit video and large files, please upload them to DropBox, Google Drive or YouTube and submit the link to that file.

If you would like to get involved, register your interest or find out more, please email us:  QLDstrategy@healingfoundation.org.au
