If you have a legal issue that falls outside of our areas of practice we can help refer you to a service that can help.
We also aim to reduce the incidence of family violence in community through:

Community development programs
Our counsellors provide support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have experienced domestic and family violence and/or sexual assault.
We use an integrated approach to counselling that is based on individual client needs.
We accept both external and self-referrals.
We will listen respectfully to your story in our confidential and comfortable counselling space and provide you with strategies to empower yourself and build self-esteem and healing.
Family violence can mean being hit or punched, but it can also mean not being allowed to do what you want to, or being told over and over again that you are "nothing". All violence must stop.
Violence is NOT our Culture, not our way...
We visit Wilcannia, Menindee and Wentworth regularly on our monthly outreach. We also service White Cliffs, Ivanhoe and Tibbooburra areas.
