Gunditjmara were proud to host a media conference on behalf of Western Region Alcohol and Drug Centre - WRAD Warrnambool on Tuesday, where an announcement of a funding boost to the would be implemented under an elected Liberal Nationals Government.
Our CEO, Ashley Couzens, welcomed the announcement and added that any facility that assists our people to recover from substance abuse is a good thing. “As an Aboriginal community controlled organisation we also have a responsibility to our community to ensure that facility is a cultural safe space for our mob this includes Aboriginal evidence based recovery models of care. Building a facility alone is great but we must go beyond the plaques and flags. My commitment to community is that we work together so our people have a say in their own recovery”.
