About Us

Winanga-Li Aboriginal Child and Family Centre (Winanga-Li) is one of nine centres in New South Wales (38 nationally) that were established and funded as a Closing the Gap initiative. Our overall aim is to provide culturally safe and appropriate education and care and support services for children and families. The name Winanga-Li in Gamilaraay language means “hear, listen, know, remember.”

Gunnedah is in the approximate centre of Gamilaraay country. Since we were established, Winanga-Li has developed a range of programs working with Aboriginal families in northwest NSW.
