Pindi Pindi’s research projects are based on the principles of sustainability, empowerment and cultural security for all Aboriginal people. We believe that a culturally secure footprint needs to be firmly and respectfully embedded into the conceptualisation, articulation, implementation and evaluation of research services to Aboriginal people. Our Centre has developed extensive and meaningful relationships with our community and is committed to empowering and educating our children, families and communities. We undertake all of our research activities with the knowledge that:
Aboriginal people are assets whose expertise, knowledge and skills are precious;
a community development model of policy and practice is necessary to make holistic impact on the wellbeing of Aboriginal people;
inclusion of Aboriginal people is a necessity to sustain research relevance, community empowerment and development at the local level;
true and active partnerships at local, state, national and international levels are essential;
prevention and early years intervention is a priority to sustainable change;
Aboriginal people and communities are diverse and our research respects and acknowledges this diversification; and
all research and development activities must apply culturally safe and secure practices.
