Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are invited to take part in a South Australia-wide Indigenous Language and Wellbeing Survey!
The link to the online survey is here: https://is.gd/IndigenousLanguagesWellbeing It takes about 10min to complete
Please see relevant flier below:
Developed in partnership with Aboriginal communities in South Australia, the Indigenous Language and Wellbeing Survey forms part of a research project hosted by Wardliparingga, the Aboriginal Health Equity Research Unit at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, and the University of Adelaide.
As the first study of its kind in the world, through the Indigenous Language and Wellbeing Survey we hope to show communities a snapshot of language use and wellbeing across South Australia.
The survey itself is not directed toward any particular language group(s) and does not require involvement in specific language programs or language-related activities. Instead, it asks more broadly about people’s exposure to and use of Indigenous languages, as well as some questions about different areas of wellbeing. All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, over the age of 15 years, living in South Australia are invited to participate.
We believe that a focus on the strengths of language can be a key way of and improving wellbeing in our communities!
As the scope of this project is state-wide, we are building networks with organisations across South Australia to help us share the survey link and to ensure the survey findings are shared widely when the project is completed. We would very much like to keep in contact with you and your networks, who can expect to hear from the project team again in early 2021. Once the survey results have been analysed we will be very keen to explore opportunities to share the findings in your area or within your organisation.
