The Indigenous Program is managed by Suze Radford who coordinates a team of experienced Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal workers who are forging and developing this comprehensive program.

The diverse work in supporting both workers and families is further informed and supported by the Reconciliation Action Plan, developed as part of Bouverie's commitment to provide a culturally safe and welcoming place for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples; a learning and spiritual environment; and identify Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander aspirations and dreams, and support the development of the collaborative black and white models for teaching and family therapy.

The Indigenous Program team are:

  • Banu Moloney; family therapist, trainer and clinical supervisor
  • Fiona McIlwaine; family therapist, trainer and clinical supervisor

The group is also joined by Shaun Coade, Senior Manager of Aboriginal Service Development, Berry Street. Shaun delivers training, consultancy and clinical supervision in partnership with the team from Bouverie.
