ABOUT AUSTRALIANS TOGETHER

Australians Together is a not-for-profit organisation that believes better outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people begin with a change in perspective of all Australians. We help non-Indigenous people learn the true story of our shared history, understand how it’s still having an impact today and find meaningful ways to respond.

We support teachers to confidently teach Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives. We do this by creating curriculum and professional learning resources to teachers. We also have resources for workplaces, churches, and all people who call Australia home.
