We noticed that something about Family by Family wasn’t clicking for Aboriginal families. Other services in the north of Adelaide also talked to us about how they were struggling to help Aboriginal families make change.
So we’ve spent the last few months hanging out with Aboriginal families to see how Family by Family can work best for them and support the changes they want to make.
From spending time with Aboriginal families (as well as some workers they knew, and our Family by Family team) we learnt some good lessons. Our aim is to make Family by Family awesome for all families, and be nice and frank about what we’re doing to work better with Aboriginal families.
We have written a report on this to share some of our learning and make it clear what we are are going to do.
