CRE Ambassador

Our Ambassador aims to promote the work of the Safer Families Centre in the broader community within the context of positioning domestic violence and abuse affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities as central to our work. 

By providing a community-informed voice, the Ambassador aims to guide our approach to Aboriginal research and promote our safe families objective. As an advocate for addressing domestic violence and abuse in communities, the Centre’s Ambassador specifically champions and is a spokesperson for the Aboriginal focus across our Centre. We are proud to have Dr Mick Adams as our Ambassador.
