Cultural Safety Training

Did you know there are significant numbers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders living in rural and regional communities across Victoria? At RWAV, we want to ensure that outreach services accessed by these clients are culturally safe and sensitive to their needs. Cultural training is a condition for outreach service providers to work within the programs.

This year, RWAV has collaborated with the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO) who are facilitating six Cultural Safety Workshops across rural Victoria.

These practical and interactive workshops will be running from:

  1. Bendigo – September 19, 2019
  2. Ballarat – October 17, 2019
  3. Collingwood – November 14, 2019
  4. Sale – February 13, 2020
  5. Wodonga – March 19, 2020
  6. Portland – April 16, 2020

Workshops are free to attend with morning tea and lunch provided. Experienced, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander facilitators deliver each workshop. Resource materials, with a certificate of participation, are provided to participants on completion of the training course.
