FRSA National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners network

Family Relationship Services Australia (FRSA) has established a national network for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners working within family relationship and support services, and for non-Indigenous practitioners who work primarily with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.

An initiative emerging from the formulation of FRSA's Reconciliation Action Plan, the online network creates a forum for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners to share ideas, information and resources, thereby helping to facilitate peer professional support. The network was established in recognition of the unique pressures faced by many Indigenous practitioners working in this sector, and the particular challenges encountered by non-Indigenous practitioners working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.
