Sisters day out

 

Overview

Sisters day out is a program of wellbeing workshops for young Koori women around Victoria. The cultural aspects of the workshops are integral to strengthening the role Koori women have in relation to family and community. The workshops build on self-esteem and identity, which reinforce women's entitlement to feel safe and secure in their roles as nurturers and leaders in the community. The program is funded by the Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department, the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, the Victorian Department of Human Services, and the Department of Justice Indigenous Issues Unit.
