Longitudinal study of remote Aboriginal children: The Bigiswun Kid Project

Marninwarntikura Women's Resource Centre
Project Lead:
Emily Carter (CEO), Sue Thomas (Strategic Priority Lead) and Dr Lauren Rice (Lead Researcher)
Project Theme:
Empowerment, Cultural Safety & Respectful Systems
Bunuba Country, Fitzroy Crossing, WA
Project Summary:

This project will follow-up the participants of the Lililwan Project to understand the wellbeing of adolescents in community. The Bigiswun Kid Project will provide information on longitudinal outcomes for adolescents in remote Aboriginal Australia, identify whether implementation of individual Lililwan Management Plans was achieved, and document difficulties in accessing services. Such information is essential to inform future service planning and provision of specialised support.


The fact that it is genuinely community-initiated and led is the key to the project’s success. It’s not just research for research sake, it’s giving young people a voice and making sure the research has an immediate benefit for the community.”
