This report presents the recommendations and outcomes from the national roundtable Empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through the Family wellbeing program. The Family wellbeing program is an effective social and emotional wellbeing program originally developed and delivered by and for Aboriginal people. The objective of the program is to develop people’s skills and capacity to move from a position of disempowerment to empowerment. It aims to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a way to control and change their lives.
