West news, Issue 10, Summer 2022

Edition: West news Issue 10, Summer 2022

In this edition of West news, we take a deep dive into the Evolve Project, which aims to deliver on the government’s commitment to self-determination by elevating Aboriginal leadership, voice and partnerships.

Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative shares its exciting plans for a new Healing Spirit Youth Hub, which will be a one-stop shop for young community members to socialise and access supports, services and programs.

We’ll see some of the ways community marked NAIDOC week and touch base with the Aboriginal Cultural Support and Awareness advisors about the impact their new roles are already having in the Child Protection space.

There is also some great news for community members who are looking for work or considering a career change, with the creation of a free careers counselling service with a specific culturally safe stream for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We trust you enjoy this edition of the West news.

The Department of Families, Fairness and Housing respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Victoria and pays its respect to the ongoing living cultures of Aboriginal peoples.
