Aboriginal-led support groups and health services.

For Aboriginal women and communities, good health is more than the absence of illness. It’s a holistic concept that encompasses physical, social, emotional, cultural, and spiritual wellbeing – for the individual and the community.

Our groups are run by Aboriginal women, who create a safe space for other Aboriginal women to feel supported and connected, through the following groups:

Yorgas Own Time

A group for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women to explore health and wellbeing.

The weekly sessions include tips and strategies to maximise physical, social and emotional wellbeing over a cuppa, yarn and education. The group also involves arts and crafts, such as painting, jewellery making, weaving and clay work. 

This group is run every week in Balga, Belmont, Merriwa and Midland.

Yorgas Own Time: Elders Group

This group is run the same as Yorgas Own Time, focused on health, wellbeing and connecting with community over arts and crafts, although it is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders.


We welcome self-referrals, as well as referrals from GPs, mental health clinics, psychiatrists and other health professionals.
