The Federal government will provide almost $400 000 for a counseling training program for Indigenous people.

Participants will study for a Diploma in Counselling and Group Work while doing related work placements in their local communities for 18 months.

Minister for Employment Participation Mark Arbib says local communities will benefit by having increased access to counselling and therapeutic services in a culturally relevant setting.

This counselling project is one of the many Australian Government initiatives developed in consultation with Indigenous communities that are structured to suit the needs of local people, Minister Arbib says.
