Clubs Associations in South Hedland
This corporation aims to provide a range of services, enterprises and programs that facilitate increased participation in employment and economic opportunities.
As the Community Development Program provider for the two regions of Hedland and the Western Desert, a large portion of AAC's workforce is focused on achieving this goal. Where real jobs are available, the staff work closely with employers to identify local jobs and jobseekers to make sure their skills currently meet the needs of employers and follow up with both groups once a jobseeker is employed. AAC staff provide guidance and preparation over induction and ongoing maintenance of the jobseeker in the work role.
Where jobs are less available, AAC supports jobseekers through design and delivery of work-like structured activities that support the development of skills to match jobs when they become available. These activities match community needs so jobseekers can gain a sense of pride from their involvement as well as work skills. AAC also has a number of economic enterprises which can support individual jobseekers. The seeking of economic development is an ongoing focus for AAC as employment opportunities are very limited in many locations.
Participation takes many shapes: as trainees in the workplace, as a jobseeker taking part in a Work Ready program or as a community member who wants to create a healthy and safe community. AAC has a genuine focus on ensuring participation by jobseekers aligns to their interests and also meets the needs of the community.

Yorgum has taken on the principals of trauma-informed and is working towards being a trauma informed service.
The name is an expression of the life-sustaining image of the living tree. The deep roots, rising sap, branches reaching to the sky, the shelter given and the home provided to the many forms of life-insects, reptiles, birds and other animals. It is a symbol of connectedness and inter-dependence in the diversity of living beings. This image conveys the philosophy of the Yorgum staff and the way in which they work.
The lack of consistent, supportive and loving relationships and the absence of positive life enhancing values are like the soil in which the tree grows. A tree is an organic system. If the whole system is diseased, you can’t just treat one of the roots and expect the rest of the tree to be healthy. You must treat the whole tree as well as the soil within which it grows.
