Koori Strong

Koori Strong 26.04

Warrigal Employment’s Koori Strong program provides support for young people (16-24) who are at risk of, or have had, experience with the judicial system. The program helps to build on community connections and culture, creating a more stable environment for young Aboriginal people.

The overall outcome of Koori Strong is to ensure young Aboriginal people enjoy similar levels of physical, emotional, and social wellbeing as those enjoyed by other Australians.

We take a holistic approach, understanding the challenges and barriers facing young Aboriginal people, and aim to support and assist community members to access employment, housing and other services that may be hindered from involvement in the justice system.


Ability Links

Warrigal Employment Ability Links

Our Ability Linkers work closely with people with disability, their families and carers to support them in their goals, hopes, and dreams.

Providers are the organisations that offer services to people with disability and the community. Linkers work for these Providers. Whether your goal is to take part in sport, education, volunteering, or other activities, you remain at the centre of decision making about how you want to lead your life. Linkers have strong local knowledge and work alongside communities, supporting them to be welcoming and inclusive.

Linkers can help you to find ways to be a part of your local community, set goals and plan your future, build confidence to achieve your dreams, and develop your existing support networks and create new networks.
