Births deaths & marriages
In 2018, Cox Inall Ridgeway launched a campaign on behalf of NSW Births Deaths and Marriages aimed to address the causes of under representation of Aboriginal birth registrations, such as distrust of government data collection, literacy and language issues and lack of awareness of the role and benefit of birth registration.
Cox Inall Ridgeway believes in bringing Indigenous knowledge and expertise together with modern technologies to contribute to solutions for policy challenges that are modern, adaptable and future-proofed. Cox Inall Ridgeway and Isobar Australia are co-developing an app using Augmented Reality (AR), to bring Indigenous stories to life.
NSW Mental Health Commission
Cox Inall Ridgeway worked in partnership with the NSW Mental Health Commission to manage media and public relations for the Gladesville Hospital Cemetery Memorial. The memorial was a NSW Government initiative to honour former residents, many of whom remain in unmarked graves on the site and to acknowledge the hurt suffered by many residents and their families.
In 2017, Cox Inall Ridgeway launched, in conjunction with the NSW Police Drug and Alcohol Coordination team, Aboriginal Community Liaison Officers (ACLOs), key health industry stakeholders as well as local Aboriginal elders and community members, a campaign aimed at raising awareness about the dangers of illegal drug use in Aboriginal communities in NSW.
The Empowering Young Women and Men to Lead Change Program was developed by Yatu Widders-Hunt and Harpreet Kalsi to build resilience and confidence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to reflect on their life journey so far and take time in a supported environment to vision what they want their future to look like and take action towards making this a reality.
