Group programs that supports Aboriginal women from pregnancy through to their child starting school to build stronger, safer and healthier relationships.
During these difficult times, I wanted to inform and update you on how Gunawirra is approaching the Coronavirus pandemic.
Gunawirra plans to follow the Series of National Guidelines that has been developed in consultation with the Communicable Disease Network Australia. Our organisation also aims to operate - at its best - alongside the NSW Health and Educational Departments guidance and according to the Public Health Act 2010 (NSW).
Gunawirra will continue to manage its activities to the community by developing a management practice able to balance the control the risk of spreading the communicable disease, on one side; and deliver an effective service to its community, on the other side.
Gunawirra has already established web support to our two mothers groups here in Sydney. The support we are providing is therapy, connection to culture, health and wellbeing, speech therapy, a nutritionist, while also offering care packs, art and craft packs and cooking items.
For our many preschools and primary schools attached to our Country programs, Gunawirra has established web, phone and email support for the children, families, teachers and communities.
We have also created Aboriginal cultural videos for our schools so that the children can still be connected to their culture and heritage. Please visit our Video Gallery to view our many videos.
I want to assure you all that Gunawirra is committed to our work and I know that we will all get through this crisis together
