Standard on Culturally Secure Practice

The Standard on Culturally Secure Practice is a combined management system and industry specific certification standard that provides a cost efficient option that meets the needs of most Western Australian alcohol and other drug services.


The Standard was developed in consultation with the alcohol and other drug sector and was the first to focus on cultural security.  Development of the Standard was supported by 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.  The Standard is supported by an Interpretive Guide.


A list of organisations certified against this standard is accessible at JAS-ANZ - Standard on Culturally Secure Practice Certified Organisations.


A number of services are working towards accreditation against this standard, so this list is expected to continually expand.
