Caring and Sharing: Aspiring to Wellbeing

From consultations with the local Aboriginal community via our Board of Directors, Executive Committee and the grass roots programs we have operated over ten years, the community have expressed the need to the reduce social isolation and provide some financial respite to those in poverty. 

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.
