Koya have built on the success of the Noongar Outreach Program and developed a pilot program that will provide a service to enhance the cultural and kinship link between and among its community, whilst providing some financial respite to families suffering from poverty. Koya has created and develop a framework for an outreach service for Aboriginal people (particularly the aged, disabled and Elders) living in the greater City of Swan region. In its infancy, the program aims to provide a one on one engagement whilst providing some household products and goods to needy families.
Caring and Sharing is a holistic wrap around service of encouraging the community to aspire to wellbeing. The service will be performed using Koya’s Aboriginal cultural security framework of: respect, responsibility, relationships and reciprocity. The purpose of our program is to connect family, kin, community is an uplifting service that will inspire participants to fulfil their wellbeing.
This is important as a critical aspect of wellbeing for Aboriginal people is their connections to their family, kin and identity. The values of our pilot program Caring and Sharing: Aspiring to wellbeing are: respect, care, share, honour, empathy, compassion and social justice.
