We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, the Wiradjuri people recognising their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
The mission of Yoorana Gunya is to Provide Aboriginal people with the opportunity to maintain a high standard of health & mental well-being, access to specialist services that provide health care, in a culturally appropriate manner and to strengthen families and the community through cultural re-connection.
Yoorana Gunya Family Healing Centre Aboriginal Corporation is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service. The organisation was established in 1997 and is governed by an all-Aboriginal Board of Directors. Whilst the organisation was originally established to reduce and combat family violence in the community, time has seen the needs of the Aboriginal community change and the focus of the organisation today is on providing primary health care and welfare services.
Yoorana Gunya is a non-profit Aboriginal Corporation funded by the State and Federal Government. At Yoorana Gunya Family Healing Centre we are committed to providing a range of health, education and family support programs to both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. Our dedicated team of health practitioners have the skills and resources to manage all of your health needs. Schedule an appointment today to experience how our professional team can guide you and your family every step on the way.
We aim to create a pathway for our communities to access our culturally safe services – this means to remove the barriers to accessing affordable health care and preventative medicine so that we can live long, happy and healthy.
Our primary health care is supported by General Practitioners, Aboriginal Clinical Manager, Registered nurse, Aboriginal Health Practitioners, Family Support Workers and Social and Emotional Wellbeing Workers. Our allied health consists of telehealth Psychologist and Psychiatrists, visiting Dietician, Optometrist, Audiologist and Podiatrist.
