Sensitivity Warning

First Peoples

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this resource may contain images or names of people who have since passed away.


This framework was developed through a co-design process with a Reference Group that consisted of members of the AES Indigenous Culture and Diversity Committee and representatives from the other main AES Committees.

The main aim of this paper is to outline the development of a culturally safe evaluation. AES provide practical guidance on the roles and responsibilities of different stakeholders in the evaluation process and what contributes to culturally safe evaluation in all phases of the evaluation process, from design through to implementation, reporting, and translating the learnings into policy and practice. It identifies the outcomes that can be achieved through full and consistent implementation of the framework.
