The Yawardani Jan-ga Project continues to deliver and develop according to project milestones.
This innovative and culturally secure initiative provides a crucial social and emotional well-being service to Aboriginal young people which is widely supported by key partners including Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services, Broome Regional Aboriginal Medical Services, Broome Youth and Families Hub, Catholic Education and Kimberley District Police.
Despite the Covid19 situation sweeping the globe, our project has kept on track and recently gained additional valuable media exposure highlighting the importance of Yawardani Jan-ga in our region. Many families who were already facing challenges are now experiencing additional stress and have articulated how imperative they feel the Yawardani Jan-ga program is for the community, particularly at this time.
Health and safety has always been a key priority and in our current climate we acknowledge the need to include increased measures in our planning.
We have adopted a risk mitigation strategy which all staff and participants have transitioned to following effortlessly. This strategy will be regularly reviewed and updated whenever necessary to comply with the latest government advice.
