Healing & Reparations

Aboriginal wellbeing has social, economic, emotional, cultural and spiritual dimensions and healing needs to occur at the individual, family and community level. Many previous government programs and policies contributed significantly to the trauma, loss and pain felt by many Aboriginal people.

The NSW Government has committed to work with Aboriginal communities to advance the dialogue in NSW about intergenerational trauma and better understanding of Aboriginal cultural perspectives on healing.

This commitment involves acknowledging and addressing the wrongs of the past and recognising that many Aboriginal families continue to experience the significant trauma, loss and intergenerational impacts of historic, racial assimilation policies.

Aboriginal Affairs NSW works with communities, policy makers and service providers, to develop responses informed by the real-life experiences of Aboriginal people.
