On Kaurna Land and founded by the late Mrs Gladys Elphick (OAM), Nunkuwarrin Yunti has been a leader in Aboriginal Health within SA for over 50 years. We are an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation with a vision to continue to lead the way in the co-design and delivery of comprehensive culturally based health, social and emotional wellbeing and healing services to our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. Nunkuwarrin Yunti means 'Working Together – Doing Right Together' and proclaims our belief of one community sharing a united vision for the future. We embody understanding of trauma informed and strengths-based principles in our daily services and practice. Our approach gives voice to Aboriginal children and families, recognises the need for agency and self-determination and the strengths and resilience of children, families and culture.
