Successful Past Projects

Our Community Our Home

The communities of Kowanyama and Lockhart River were identified to participate in the development of foster care resources for children and young people in out of home care.

The suite of culturally-informed resources are to be used by foster carers and children in their care to enhance knowledge and pride of community and culture.

The development and design of the resources were guided by community reference groups ensuring appropriate information is utilised and endorsed.

This project is an Empowering Families Innovation Grant - funded by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women
