Cultural Restoration Program

This year, the funds raised from our annual NAIDOC Ball went towards our Cultural Restoration Porgram. This is dedicated to ensuring that every child in our care is given a fair opportunity to live their best life!

Aboriginal Aboriginal children are disproportionately represented in the child protection sector. We work to change that – to keep our kids safe and to enable them to grow and flourish into adulthood.

Cultural links are vital for the well-being of children, especially those of Aboriginal descent placed in foster care. Aboriginal culture is deeply intertwined with the land, community, and spirituality, playing a pivotal role in shaping a child’s sense of self, value, and understanding of the world. The absence of cultural ties can have severe and lifelong effects on the mental,
emotional, and spiritual well-being of Aboriginal children in foster care. Research indicates that maintaining cultural connections can provide a foundation for these children to develop a positive self-identity, establish community bonds, and foster a profound comprehension and appreciation of their culture. Consequently, this support bolsters emotional well-being, resilience, and serves as a countermeasure against the intergenerational trauma’s impact.

At Narang Bir-rong Aboriginal Corporation, we provide specific opportunities for children to engage with their culture and heritage. These include language classes, cultural camps, and access to traditional knowledge and teachings.
