About The Healing Foundation
The Healing Foundation aims to address the ongoing trauma within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities. The foundation is also leading the way in research into Indigenous healing.
Since starting operations in 2010, they have:
funded 175+ community organizations to lead and develop healing projects
established an impressive body of research and evidence
assisted 45,000+ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members in their healing journeys
provided grants for local commemorative events.
They work with communities “to create a place of safety, providing an environment for Stolen Generations survivors and their families to speak for themselves, tell their own stories and be in charge of their own healing.”
