Standard on Culturally Secure Practice

Human services throughout Australia and New Zealand are now able to have the quality of their service recognised through certification against the Standard on Culturally Secure Practice. The Standard is supported by an Interpretive Guide to assist agencies in achieving certification.

WANADA developed the Standard in consultation with the alcohol and other drug sector. The Standard is the first to focus on cultural security and has been developed with support from the Western Australian Mental Health Commission (formerly the Drug and Alcohol Office) and the Australian Government’s Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health. In Western Australia, the Standard supersedes the WA Alcohol and Other Drug Sector Quality Framework.
