Social and emotional wellbeing program

 

Overview

The Social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) program was established in 2011 for the purpose of consolidating the Link up and Bringing them home (BTH) programs, as well as the Social and emotional wellbeing regional centres (SEWB RCs). The main objective of the program is to enhance existing service delivery to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, prioritising members of the Stolen generations, through more flexible models of service delivery and increased capacity to meet demand for services.

The SEWB program structure has not changed the way that services are being delivered nor the primary roles of counsellors and caseworkers who will still provide services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people separated from their families as a result of past governments' removal policies.
