The Australian Government is investing over $4 million towards a pilot program that will establish 11 place-based partnerships between Indigenous language centres and local service delivery partners in health and early childhood education. This pilot study will consider languages as a cultural determinant of engagement with services such as mental health and wellbeing facilities, employment opportunities and child care.
