Our program coordinator has expertise with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural needs and works directly with carers to link them into several areas of support.
All carers who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander are eligible for this program.
Call Carers ACT to find out more about this program and how else we can help you.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and supported by the Australian Government.
Carers ACT organises Yarning trips to help you "get away" and learn more about Indigenous cultural practices around Australia. Each of these trips include traditional cultural elements, such as a welcome from local Indigenous communities to the visiting Canberra Indigenous people, singing, dancing, art and history.
