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 closed on 8 May, 2020. If you would like to make contact with us to talk about the Queensland Healing Strategy, please email us at: QLDStrategy@healingfoundation.org.au

What does healing looks like for you?

gabu gu djaan program

Central Queensland Indigenous Development (CQID) delivers the gabu gu djaan program which means boys to men in Butchulla language. This program provides the opportunity for young boys aged 10 – 17 years old, at risk of getting into trouble or disengaging with school, family and community, to come together on a weekly basis. The gabu gu djaan program helps to build their confidence with positive male role models guiding them through a program that gives them a stronger sense of identity, culture, respect and belonging, while building trust, communication skills and improving wellbeing.
