Gudjagang Ngara li-dhi

Who are we?
Having worked with young people who have offending behaviours from 13 – 17 years we recognise that holistic supports need to be put in place earlier to support the child and the family.
Simone Hudson, CEO
Gudjagang Ngara li-dhi
Gudjagang Ngara li-dhi means “listen to the children” in Darkinyung language. GNL provide support services for Aboriginal children, young people and families. Our goal is to help heal our families and improve their health, social and wellbeing outcomes. Our services are grounded in Aboriginal world views with the needs of the child and family at the centre of our decision-making.
What are we doing?

Ngura-gu Yana (Come to the Camp)

Ngura-gu Yana (Come to the Camp) will create culturally safe community spaces to benefit 7-13 year old Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people (C/YP) who are disconnected from community, displaying risky behaviour or have been in contact with the justice system. Our early intervention programs are effective in supporting C/YP to change their life course. We understand that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work and that it takes a connected community to raise a child. We also know that often C/YP can’t live at home and have nowhere to go, putting them at high risk of offending. Ngara-gu Yana answers this by providing temporary housing close to existing resources and Elders, Aunties, Uncles and peers and community.
