Numula Women’s Group meets every Wednesday between 10am and 2pm during the school terms at Kurbingui Youth and Family Development – “old bakery” 425 Zillmere Road Zillmere 4034.
The women’s group operates as a healing circle and a place for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women to come together for friendship, yarning and cultural activities. The group is strength based and focuses on increasing cultural knowledge, community connections, skills and knowledge of areas of interest as a way of achieving healing for our mob. It is participant driven i.e. the women outline the information and activities they would like to do as they meet each week.
The overall objective of the women’s group is to strengthen the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander women. This is done through support and assistance provided to the women participants to become strong, healthy and resilient and share their knowledge and skills with family members and other community members.
