Wungening Aboriginal Corporation (Wungening) is a progressive Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation based in Perth. Wungening provides culturally secure alcohol and other drug programs, manages a refuge for women and children escaping family violence and an emergency relief program. Wungening also leads two large consortia of four agencies each, supporting people to reintegrate back into community after release from prison and an in-home support service aimed at keeping children safe at home. Recently Wungening has also moved into the homelessness space and is a contracted partner in the delivery of housing first services. We are governed by 100% Aboriginal Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer and maintain at least 70% Aboriginal staff. Starting with two unfunded staff in 1989 after Aboriginal people lobbied for services that better suited their needs; Wungening is now a leading community controlled not-for-profit with nine locations and managing over 200 staff to further our vision of a healthy, safe, strong Aboriginal community.
Wungening has established partnerships with universities and research bodies and commenced a number of collaborative research projects. Wungening is no longer just responding to requests for support for research, rather we are actively involved in the design and implementation of the projects and implementing improvements, change, and action as we learn.
This position will coordinate these research projects and communicate research findings to program areas in order to connect insights to practice.
