The Healing Foundation has been working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders to co-design and develop the first ever Queensland Healing Strategy.
We have heard from more than 400 people through interviews, forums, online surveys and yarning circles, in Cairns, the Gold Coast, Inala, Rockhampton, St George and Yarrabah. We have heard from Stolen Generations survivors, Elders, young people, families, community organisations, and healers.
The Healing Strategy and Implementation plan are now being considered by the Queensland government and the Queensland First Children and Families Board to identify and work with key partners across government and the community to maximise opportunities for implementation.
We look forward to sharing the Queensland Healing Strategy and next steps with you soon.
The voices we heard have been brought together in the Dreaming Big report, which you can download below.
