Project Summary:

This project is situated in the Kimberley, Western Australia. It follows up the participants of the Lililwan Project to understand the wellbeing of adolescents in community. The Bigiswun Kid Project provides 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.”
