Australian Government Invests $6m to Strengthen Indigenous Fathers and Families

Minister for Indigenous Health and Rural and Regional Health, Warren Snowdon today announced $6 million would be invested in a new parenting initiative called Strong Fathers, Strong Families for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.
The funding is part of the Rudd Government’s $16.7 million commitment to tackle health challenges facing Australian males, and was launched with the nation’s first male health policy.

"The aim of the Strong Fathers, Strong Families initiative is to strengthen the knowledge, skills, confidence of Indigenous males in their roles as fathers, grandfathers and significant male relatives in the lives of their children, by increasing their participation," Mr Snowdon said.
