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
