Clubs Associations in South Hedland

Ashburton Aboriginal Corporation

This corporation aims to provide a range of services, enterprises and programs that facilitate increased participation in employment and economic opportunities.

  • Type:Aboriginal,Association
  • Charity:Aboriginal

Details

Description

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 Aboriginal Corporation

This corporation offers an autonomous, Aboriginal-specific community-based counselling and referral service.

  • Type:Aboriginal,Association
  • Charity:Aboriginal,Local Community,Mental Health

Details

Description

We provide an environment to enhance the healing process for Aboriginal individuals and their families experiencing emotional distress, and working towards empowerment collectively and individually.

At all times we operate within the framework of Aboriginal Terms of Reference.

Yorgum has taken on the principals of trauma-informed and is working towards being a trauma informed service.

The name “Yorgum” is a Noongar name for a large red flowering gum tree which has healing properties. Aboriginal people have used the gum for many years in the treatment of numerous ailments, including diseases of the eyes.

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.

Abuse can be compared to a tree with the root system being affected by some of the factors such as loss of culture, identity, low self-esteem, unresolved cultural traumatic experiences.

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.

The underlying philosophy is the valuing of our diversity; in different individuals, different families; language groups and people from places who are included and respected; that human differences can be accepted as expressions of our uniqueness and capacity to survive.
