National Aboriginal Birth Certificate Program


Please be advised that we have recently been informed that Queensland, NSW, Victoria and ACT residents are no longer able to access this program due to budgeting restrictions.

The program officially ends on 31st December 2017. Pathfinders are applying for further funding to go to Stage 2, but the outcome will be dependent on the funding body.  We will endeavour to keep you updated on the outcome as it comes to light.


Research Opportunities


Resilience in frontline workers

Researchers from Macquarie University invite qualified social workers to take part in a 15 minute online survey into resilience. The survey will take around 15 minutes to complete and participants have the chance to win one of ten $50 Coles/Myer gift cards.

Participation in research is seen as an activity which contributes significantly to the social work professions' skill and knowledge base and can therefore be recorded as part of your annual CPD hours under category 3.
