Abstract

This report provides the outcomes of a review that examined programs and projects focusing on Indigenous family violence and child protection. This paper found that elements of effective service include:

  • providing long time-frames for programs to build trust with communities, identify client needs, develop effective engagement strategies, foster culturally appropriate understanding for all staff, and develop evaluations focusing on longer-term outcomes
  • Indigenous participation in all levels of program planning, development, and delivery
  • engagement with Indigenous families
  • holistic and culturally sensitive services
  • collaboration between partners
  • longer-term funding opportunities for services
  • appropriate program evaluation.
