A place based model for Aboriginal community-led solutions (ARC Discovery Indigenous Project administered by Univeristy of Wollongong) (2019–2022)
This project aims to investigate the unique approaches used by Aboriginal community controlled organisations to
enable community ownership of holistic health and social programs in complex community settings. Focusing on a
close analysis of regional south eastern NSW, the research will produce a robust theorisation of a place based
model for Aboriginal community-led solutions to health and social issues.This will be inclusive of innovative
mechanisms for the transfer and sharing of learnings to other locations. Utilising a Indigenist research
methodology and a community based participatory action research approach, the Aboriginal led investigator team
will work in close partnership with Aboriginal community organisations in NSW, WA and Qld.
