Our Approach

Gurrutu Centred

 A gurruṯu-centred approach recognises and works through the existing Yolŋu system of relatedness, care and responsibility through which family violence issues can be better understood and addressed.

Client Led

Our services are designed to offer guidance, knowledge, support and safety to women so they can negotiate their own ways of overcoming their experiences of domestic and family violence.

Two Worlds

We are currently developing our service model in line with cultural and community needs.

 

More to come.
