Mt Druitt OCHRE Healing Forum held

  • 2 November 2017

    On Friday 27th October the Baabayn Aboriginal Corporation hosted its OCHRE Healing Forum event on behalf of the Mt Druitt Aboriginal community - the first in a series of forums to be held across New South Wales (NSW) during 2017 and 2018. The statewide Mapu Yaan Gurri, Mapu Marrunggirr - Healing Our Way Forum held in 2014 was the beginning of a formal discussion on healing for Aboriginal communities in NSW. Following the Healing Our Way Forum Report, the NSW Government committed to continue the dialogue on healing with Aboriginal communities. These Healing Forums are the first step in setting the vision for comprehensive healing in NSW. The OCHRE Plan, the NSW Government’s Aboriginal affairs strategy, is the only state based Aboriginal plan where healing is one of the critical outcomes.
