Working with the Indigenous Community in the Pathways to Prevention Project
The Pathways to Prevention project is an early intervention, developmental prevention project run in Inala, a socially disadvantaged urban area in Queensland. The project is based on the assumption that mobilising social resources to support children, families and their communities before problems emerge is more effective than intervening when problems have become entrenched. The purpose of this article is to reflect on some of the work of the Project, particularly as it has involved the local Indigenous population. A key objective is to demonstrate the interconnectedness of the issues and challenges that Indigenous parents and children face.
