A new Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Hub

Council has joined forces with Cooinda Community Group to pilot a culturally safe and welcoming space that offers programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in Brimbank.

It’s still early days and activities are starting out small and will develop over time.

For now, Cooinda are operating three days a week from Romsey Villa in Furlong Road, Sunshine North.

The group will be holding Elders’ meetings from time to time and the Koorie Homework Club, held each Monday of the school term, will alternate between Romsey Villa and the St Albans Community Centre.

A number of yarning circles and workshops also started in February, to plan events for Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community have expressed their excitement to have a dedicated hub as it allows them to connect with culture and share knowledge.

If you’re interested to find out more, call Council’s Reconciliation Officer on 9249 4000.
