Healthy family circle program: supporting women caring for children

 

Overview

Mudgin-Gal Aboriginal Women's Corporation, a women's centre located in the Sydney suburb of Redfern, has been running the Healthy family circle program for the past four years. Funded by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs under the Community Investment Program. The program supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women facing family violence, social isolation and disadvantage. The program was developed in partnership with Relationships Australia (NSW) (RANSW), and offers mentoring and support to women caring for children and their families in order to help them identify healthy and safe choices for their wellbeing.

Operating through a range of workshops, activities and informal exchanges - such as lunchtime conversations or "yarning" - the program aims to empower women through skill and knowledge-sharing and the development of tools to identify and reach life goals.
