Gawooleng Yawoodeng Aboriginal Corporation

Gawooleng Yawoodeng Aboriginal Corporation is a women's shelter and support service that provides a safe house and services to women experiencing family violence and their families in the Kununurra area. Led by a board of strong and proud Indigenous women, GY takes a family-focused holistic approach to addressing family violence within a culturally appropriate context. As GY also supports the local Indigenous women's Lore and Culture, holding significant items on site the refuge is a very safe space for women and children both within a mainstream structure and local Indigenous Lore. The inspiration behind the programs run from GY is that they are developed through grass roots community members with their ideas and visions heard.
