Our role is to work side by side and help increase their capacity to lead safe and healthy lives with improved life choices.
The Walytjapiti (caring for family together) Program’s vision is for Anangu families to remain healthy and positive about the future. To live in strong and independent communities where there is increased socioeconomic equality, children are in school and adults are meaningfully engaged.
These are communities where people are proud of their cultural identity, celebrate its rich and dynamic nature and raise happy, healthy children.

We provide a comprehensive orientation program, best practice supervision, professional development that includes vicarious trauma and case management training along with critical incident de-briefing and a range of counselling services to support you.
