Gathering Stories: The art and power of storycatching in human service work.

This resource is designed to assist community and human service workers with gathering stories.

These could be the stories of people who access your service—stories of the work you have done with them—or your stories, where you reflect on your own practice. Stories have the power to improve.

Connecting with Culture on Dja Dja Wurrung Country

Hello – Womindjika – Welcome

Noah’s Ark Inc and Communities for Children Bendigo are privileged to have worked with members of our local community to create ‘Connecting with Culture on Dja Dja Wurrung Country’ – a short video which has been developed through our work in listening to the voice of Aboriginal families and sharing their experiences to influence system and practice change.

The video is the first component in an evolving toolkit which aims to guide and support services to be welcoming and respectful to aboriginal families and engage meaningfully with Aboriginal Culture, focussing on local connection and perspectives.

The toolkit will contain resources, contacts, an audit tool, links and more and be available in an electronic format via email and on the Communities for Children website in the coming weeks.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that this video may contain images and voices of deceased persons.
