Our Location

The Numula Family Safety Response Program (Numula) is funded to provide culturally responsive support and links to services for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander individuals and families impacted by Domestic and Family Violence. The service is multi-functional-holistic and flexible in the ways of working and focuses on the health and well-being of all family members through the provision of case management, groups and activities.

The Numula Women’s Group is one of the groups provided. The Numula program recognises the cultural importance of connectedness, extended kinship systems and cultural protocols and as such acknowledges and respects the diversity and uniqueness within Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander culture.

About the Women’s Group

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.

What the Women’s Group Can Offer

Activities e.g. art & crafts, presenters sharing information, yarning circles, connections with others.

The Benefits

Here at Kurbingui staff are highly committed to supporting our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities on their healing journeys. The Numula Yarning Women’s Group want to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women to consider becoming involved in community by supporting each other while experiencing their own healing at the same time. It is a safe space to connect with the Elders within the community and learn new skills and meet new people.
