Our approach

Yeddung Mura is a great believer in the restorative process and all its programs are designed with a clear focus on four key areas, as mentioned in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander whole of government Agreement:

  1. Construction of Identity
  2. Build Strong Family Connections
  3. Link up Community Connections
  4. Social Inclusion

Yeddung Mura has the full support of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body and United Ngunnawal Elders Council.

 The wise counsel of Elected body members, and other community members, are consulted on a regular basis on development and  delivery of Yeddung Mura’s services
