Family Violence Program

(funded by the Australian Government Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs ( FaHCSIA)
Kurbingui continues to service the community through its Family Violence Program and this year the focus is on supporting our men and boys to establishing healthy and successful lives through the “Numula” Family Violence Program. The program co-ordinator, Sammy Leone has been appointed to this program, which will run over two (2) years to build the capacity of families in dealing with issues of family violence in the North Brisbane and Wynnum region.
The “Numula” Family Violence Program seeks to provide safety strategies, healing, education and challenge behaviours that allow violence and abuse to occur in the community. We intend to build personal skills and capacities that will support individuals to make healthy and positive choices. ‘Numula’ is a Yugerah word for “embrace” which is key to our work in the community.

Sammy identifies strongly with the Brisbane North Indigenous community and will be actively pursuing activities and engagements with ‘like’ agencies to improve outcomes in this area.
