Aboriginal Partnership Network
The Aboriginal Partnership Network (APN) is an inclusive regional group of Aboriginal people working in the fields of education, training, employment, health, community services and justice. APN members work together to improve learning, employment, and health outcomes for the local Aboriginal community by sharing information, resources and data, and through discussion and collaboration on projects and new initiatives. The APN also hosts Forums on topics of importance to the Aboriginal community especially those issues which impact on young people.
In 2014 the APN held a well attended forum on the needs and issues affecting young people in out of home care. Over time the APN has welcomed a number of non Aboriginal members from organisations with an interest in supporting the Aboriginal community bringing the overall membership of the APN to around 100 members.
Most recently the APN was invited to host its April meeting at the home ground of the Geelong Cats to celebrate the raising of the Aboriginal flag as a permanent fixture at the Club.
A regular bulletin is sent to APN members giving information specific to the Aboriginal community in the greater Geelong region. If you would like to join the network or our distribution list please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
