Yeddung Mura recently moved its day to day operation to a new 1.3 hectare leased facility in Fadden, near Fadden Pines. This facility acts as a drop-in center for clients to get support during the day. The facility has tennis courts, and we are working towards getting pets for therapy. This would keep the clients busy in a safer environment and sway them away from drugs. There are pool tables, video games, table tennis tables for clients to keep themselves active.
