Aboriginal Women's Disability Support Group

Join us for a six-week wellbeing and yarning group for Aboriginal women who have a disability or are caring for someone with a disability. This is an open space for women to build new relationships, learn from one another and feel supported.

Who is it for?

This series of online workshops is for Aboriginal Women living anywhere in NSW who have a disability or are caring for someone with a disability.

What will it be like?

Through an online group workshop over six weeks, you’ll participate in discussions and guided activities. Experienced facilitators from Relationships Australia NSW will help you build skills to support you in your role as a carer. You’ll also have the opportunity to connect with other carers in a safe and supportive environment.

This group program is run online, by our Disability Royal Commission Counselling team.

The program will help you:

  • Explore ideas of self-identity and connection
  • Uncover how your Aboriginal world view can take care of you
  • Discover simple strategies to enhance your wellbeing and mental health
