Aboriginal Women's Advisory Group (AWAG) turns 10

The landmark Indigenous organisation, Aboriginal Women's Advisory Group (AWAG) celebrated 10 years with a luncheon at the CWA Hall this week.

About 20 women from the community celebrated AWAG's luncheon, among them were four original members of the founding group.

AWAG was formed in May 2003 and is managed by the Family Planning NSW Dubbo centre, which provides access to reproductive and sexual health services.

Dubbo centre manager with Family Planning, Ann Ryan, said AWAG catered to the Aboriginal community and in its 10 years had introduced specific clinics for Aboriginal women. 'We've recently conducted our strong family project, which developed an education program for Elders and youth to create learning pathways for Aboriginal health workers and other community members as well as increase access to clinical services in Jinchilla,' Ms Ryan said.

The group meets bi-monthly to advise, support and offer recommendations on the creation of partnerships with local Indigenous services.

'I hope AWAG continues to keep its vibrant group, which reflects a variety of aspects from the community and the services it offers,' Ms Ryan said.
