SNAICC Genuine Partnerships Project

Current project

Supports genuine partnerships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and non-Indigenous service providers.

The Genuine Partnerships Project is a collaboration between AIFS, the Department of Social Services and SNAICC – National Voice for our Children.

SNAICC is the national non-government peak body for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

The Genuine Partnerships Project supports genuine partnerships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and non-Indigenous service providers funded through the Families and Children (FaC) Activity.

It promotes partnerships that contribute to self-determination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by:

  • highlighting the skills and strengths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations in the design and delivery of services to families
  • consulting with non-Indigenous and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service providers
  • building the capacity of non-Indigenous organisations to deliver more culturally appropriate services.

As part of the project, SNAICC will:

  • create and publishing resources that support genuine partnerships
  • invite service providers to participate in a self-assessment process for partnership development and readiness
  • work with selected FaC organisations to facilitate partnership development
  • produce case studies on effective partnerships.
