Connecting Country Program for Aboriginal people.
We're very excited to announce that the Connecting Countries program is being extended to include female participants from 2023.
With funding from nib Foundation and the support of Miyumba and the local Aboriginal community the Connecting Countries Program aims to improve the mental health of Aboriginal people aged between 13-35.
The program aims to strengthen the social and emotional wellbeing through connecting to Self, Community, Culture, and Country.
The three-day program is based on Wonnarua, Worimi and/or Awabakal lands, is available to all Aboriginal people residing in the Maitland, Newcastle or Port Stephens areas.
Activities included in the program will see participants engage in culturally based activities, including collecting traditional items, hunting and gathering, visiting sacred sites, storytelling, fishing and building connections with other Aboriginal people.
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 running in 2023. Show your interest in attending by completing the form.
