Hope For Health kicks another goal!

Hope For Health continues to be truly good news story amongst the devastating health problems of Yolŋu people and other Aboriginal people across Australia.
In January this year, following the living health examples of the Hope For Health women, two Yolngu couples from Galiwin'ku (Elcho Island NT) suffering from life-threatening conditions traveled to the Living Valley Springs health retreat in Queensland. After 2 weeks of healthy eating and lifestyle change, the results were outstanding!

Bridging The Gap Training

We are pleased to announce the dates of our next Bridging The Gap seminars. These intensive 2-day learning experiences equip participants with the knowledge, skills and mindfulness to work and relate with Aboriginal people more effectively. They have helped hundreds of professionals across Australia to transform their engagement with First Australians and achieve true empowerment and reconciliation through a more developed cross-cultural mindset.

These will be the last two seminars in their current form, so don’t miss out if you haven’t attended one already!
