A place based model for Aboriginal community-led solutions (ARC Discovery Indigenous Project administered by Univeristy of Wollongong) (2019–2022)

Abstract:
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.
