Woor-Dungin takes a community-development approach to create bridges between Aboriginal community-controlled organisations and philanthropy, building partnerships for change based on strong and trusting relationships and shared learning.
We develop genuine partnerships with a small number of Aboriginal community-controlled organisations in Victoria, working with them to foster meaningful relationships with philanthropic organisations and pro bono service providers. In turn we help philanthropy and pro bono service providers to engage effectively and respectfully with Aboriginal communities and issues.
Woor-Dungin provides work experience, personal counselling, skills development, on-the-job training, access to financial support such as scholarships, professional development and computer training for Aboriginal people, particularly women. We offer a culturally safe space for Aboriginal offenders to undertake their community correction orders.
