We acknowledge the Kariyarra people as the traditional custodians of the land where we work. We pay our respects to them and their Elders past, present, and emerging. We extend this respect to all First Australians and recognise their rich cultures and their continuing connection to land and waters.

Walking together, looking forward, looking back - to strengthen our next generation
We believe that Aboriginal people are the informed voice on Aboriginal issues and the importance of ensuring our services are informed and culturally safe.
We believe that together, and by leading by example, we can inspire change.
We believe our Elders, youth, and community are the key to change and strengthening our next generation.
What We Do
Celebrating strength and reducing barriers for Aboriginal families
Kumaparniku provides support to families with children under 5 years. The wholistic approach supports families set realistic and achievable goals for themselves to improve outcomes and create a positive and sustainable future for their young families.
Mara Yunguma provides wrap-around services to a previously isolated group of families. The aim is to support families to relocate and achieve their goals around areas such as; housing, employment, education and recreation.
Julyardi has partnered with WA Dept. of Communities to deliver the Target-120 Program. The program supports young people in the community between the ages of 10 and 14 years who have had contact with Police.
Karlyarti provides wraparound services to these young people and their families. The goal of the program is to engage young people in positive activities and work toward future goals to reduce further contact with the justice system.
Julu Kuma Ngarlijuru
The project aims to empower the local Aboriginal community, address their needs and aspirations, and create a more inclusive and integrated service system for children in the early years.
