Wadawurrung Community Advisory Group

As this project is an Indigenous resource intended to be used by Aboriginal and Torres strait Islander peoples, we are working with a community advisory group to co-design and develop this resource.

The group is made up of six Aboriginal community members who reside on Wadawurrung Country. Their views are important to informing the resource and although focus groups and interviews have been held throughout the region to capture the voices of many Indigenous peoples, these six people will have final approval of all culturally relevant decisions.
