Buwadjarr Mari (Aboriginal Fathers) 

Our Aboriginal Fathers Program supports Aboriginal Dads, Pops and Uncles to be strong healthy role models who engage in a child's life as early as possible, by encouraging them to contribute to the health and wellbeing of the Mums during pregnancy and help provide a nurturing and supportive family environment for the child.
The Aboriginal Fathers Program aims to connect Aboriginal men to stand together, taking back their cultural responsibilty to protect and keep women and children safe, and stand strong as cultural role models within the community.
We aim to promote positive, healthy, active parenting and positive leadership.
