Bubup Wilam Aboriginal Child & Family Centre

Bubup Wilam Aboriginal Child & Family Centre

Bubup Wilam, meaning “Children’s Place” in Woi Wurrung language, is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Education, Health and Wellbeing organisation. This ensures the local Aboriginal Community have control over issues that directly affect their community and take up their right to self-determination in a meaningful and effective way. 

Bubup Wilam’s philosophy is to reinforce this through strengthening our children’s strong sense of Aboriginal identity and personal self-esteem, as their foundation for lifelong learning, health, and wellbeing. With the support of their parents and extended family our children are taking the lead responsibility in owning and maintaining their identity and developing their learning and engagement with others in a confident and supported way. We aim to ensure our children at a very early age begin the journey in reaching their full human potential.

Bubup Wilam provides Aboriginal children, families, and the community with access to an integrated range of health and wellbeing services and programs centring around the child through attending our long day and kindergarten programs. This is then extended to their school aged siblings and the family.
