Indian Cultural Competency Training

Along with The Smith Family and Brimbank Communities for Children, IndianCare conducted an online cultural competency training for 25 family services and early years workers. This training aimed to improve mainstream services’ understandings of the attitudes and behaviours , family patterns and parenting practices of Indian communities in Australia in order to minimise barriers to service engagement and improve uptake of suggested strategies.

Under the umbrella of cohealth’s LDAT project, IndianCare conducted a positive parenting session for Chin community members. A strong turnout and positive feedback demonstrated the success of this project.
