Our experienced team of professionals and trade staff can tailor a power, water and/ or wastewater solution to suit the requirement of any remote area operation. Our Property Management team have many years’ experience and have the processes in place to organise and manage any number of property portfolios.

This experience places PMMRAC in unique company. There are few companies, if any, who could provide such high quality services in such extreme conditions across 600,000 km².

PMMRAC operates and is committed to high standards selecting our suppliers and people very carefully. We acquire, retain and develop motivated personnel to ensure that the high levels of service we offer are maintained. Our overall strategy is to focus on the delivery of end to end solutions that add immediate value to customers. To support this high quality service delivery we have formed relationships with proven and committed strategic alliance partners that offer niche services and solutions that complement our offerings.

Established processes ensure that the business operates effectively and efficiently. Under a strong leadership team, the focus is on excellence, health and safety and flexibility in the delivery of our services.

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.
