Cultural Competency Assessment/AuditDeveloping a suitable assessment tool is the first logical step for any organisation to measure their cultural competency comprehensively. This will help build a plausible evidence base for your organisation to dedicate resources and remove systems and practices that exclude people.
We can develop easy to use and effective tools to capture relevant and important information on how your organisation is tracking.
Cultural Competency TrainingAll organisations, public or private, small or large, interact with a diverse workforce and community. A culturally competent organisation is an organisation where all its members feel safe to practice their culture and are able to participate without being discriminated or excluded.
This program will focus on the definition of Cultural Safety and steps towards building a culturally competent organisation.
This training will be developed to match the needs of your organisation. A pre and post evaluation maximises the impact of the program.
Diversity & Inclusion Policy & Action PlanEvery organisation should have a robust and solid diversity and inclusion policy to guide its practice. But more importantly, there needs to be an effective action plan to help the organisation implement the policy.
With our combined legal and community development expertise, we can help you develop your exclusive diversity and inclusion policy within the human rights framework.
Culturally appropriate Community Consultation and EngagementMost statutory bodies are legally required to effectively consult and engage the community when making decisions about services and programs that impact people.
The usual methods of online surveys, inviting people to a venue and sending flyers don’t quite capture the populations or groups who are often considered as hard to reach.
We will work with you to design and deliver culturally appropriate community consultation and engagement and will provide you with the tools from conception to evaluation.
EvaluationOrganisations invest a significant amount of human and financial resources in developing policies, projects and programs and building a evaluation plan is often overlooked or is an after thought. We can assist your organisation to evaluate your past or existing programs, more importantly, we can help you integrate a robust and practical evaluation framework into your project/programs at the start.
Training for Community Groups and Organisations
We offer a range of capacity building programs to community organisations and clubs including, but not limited to:Project Planning: An interactive workshop/ or series of workshops to help groups develop a solid project plan from conception to evaluation.

Grant Application Appraisal & ReviewCommunity groups or individuals spend a great deal of time writing up a grant application. Some grant applications do not quite capture the essence of the project and fail to respond to the guidelines set out by the funding body. We can provide advice, and appraise and review grant applications to ensure that a grant application is presented in its best shape to get the attention of the funding body.
