10th anniversary funding available from the Healing Foundation

  • 19 October 2017

    Monday 13 February 2018 marks 10 years since the National Apology to Stolen Generations and Indigenous people of Australia. The Healing Foundation says this Intergenerational Trauma still effects communities and must be acknowledged. This is the trauma experienced not just individually but collectively between generations.

    The Healing Foundation will be commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Apology to:

    - celebrate the Stolen Generations

    - raise awareness of the importance of acknowledging and addressing the effects of Intergenerational Trauma

    - increase understanding of the healing needs of Stolen Generations members

    - celebrate the strength of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians working together.

    The Healing Foundation is partnering with communities and organisations to hold events to mark this significant milestone in Australia's history.

    Funding is now available to support events in communities. This funding will allow communities to commemorate the Apology, and continue to raise awareness about the healing needs of Stolen Generations, including the effects of Intergenerational Trauma.
