Culturally responsive and inclusive practice in Australia

Introducing new AASW resource: Preparing for culturally responsive and inclusive social work practice in Australia: working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

The AASW Professional Standards team, as part of the AASW’s ongoing commitment to its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), is pleased to announce the launch of this new practice information sheet on culturally responsive and inclusive practice. The resource’s primary target audience is internationally qualified social workers who migrate to Australia to commence social work practice; however it is relevant to all social workers practicing in Australia. The Professional Standards team wishes to pass on our sincere thanks to all those who contributed to the development of this resource. 

It is intended that over time this new resource will form part of a suite of new and innovative resources and training for both ‘newly arrived’ social workers, as well as for Australian trained social workers, which will further focus on culturally inclusive and responsive practice.

For any queries or to provide feedback, please contact the Professional Standards team on 03 9320 1044.
