Strong Men, Strong Families project



The Strong Men, Strong Families project, designed for Aboriginal men in South Australia, encourages men to take responsibility for their behaviour and learn from past negative actions. It explores ways to strengthen Aboriginal men's role in their family and community. The underlying principle is to allow Aboriginal men to come together in a safe and culturally strong place to discuss how to become a good father, loving partner, and positive role model within their community.

The Strong Men, Strong Families project has developed tailored information sessions and interactive workshops dealing with subjects including:

The program will also provide therapeutic counselling, support, and advocacy, and will work closely with Aboriginal men to assist them in dealing with local services, including resolving matters with Housing SA, Centrelink and other local Port Augusta service providers.
