What we Deliver
CASSE’s Aboriginal Australian Relations Program works alongside communities – listening, learning, understanding and collaborating – to develop insight into people’s emotional worlds, about obstacles, violence and problem behaviours, in order to promote healing. We aim to nurture awareness, both self-awareness and a community awareness, in order to change minds and save lives.
