nib_RGB_foundation_HORIZ_GW-01Program for Aboriginal men.

We're very excited to announce that we're continuing to offer the Yarn Up Connecting Countries program

With funding from nib Foundation and support of Miyumba, the Yarn Up Connecting Countries Program aims to improve the mental health of  Aboriginal men aged 13-35 years, with an identified need, who reside in the Maitland, Newcastle or Port Stephens areas.

The program aims to strengthen the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal men through connecting to Self, Community, Culture and Country.

It will run over 3 consecutive days on the lands of the Wonnarua, Worimi and Awabakal peoples.

Over these 3 days participants will engage in culturally-based activities which include collecting traditional items, hunting and gathering and, importantly, spending time with and connecting with Aboriginal men.

There is no cost to participate in the group.

If you require  additional support to attend the program, your existing support worker or a We Care NSW support worker can help you.

We have a number of programs set for May 2022. Show your interest in attending these or future dates that suit you by completing the form.
