Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community
Our service is committed to supporting the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander carers, families and community.
Within our Aged Program, we have an Aboriginal Access and Support Worker. Across the whole of our service, we work collaboratively with local service providers and Elders to be mindful of cultural needs.
Some of the things we do involve:
- Working with culturally safe services
- Educating our own staff on supporting families with different cultural needs
- Providing advice on availability of services including what they can do and any costs involved
- Hosting an annual Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander retreat to share information and give carers a break.
Please call us on 1800 052 222 for more information.
Alfred Health Carer Services acknowledges the traditional Aboriginal owners of country throughout Victoria. We pay our respects to them, their culture and their Elders both past and present.
