The Nguru Program

The Nguru Program provides culturally appropriate counselling for members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, who have experienced sexual assault, and their families.

Nguru aims to help service users assess their circumstances and relationships, and to make choices, decisions and plans for the future. The Nguru programs approach is holistic and family centred. Assistance is provided through discussions with professional counsellors in individual and group sessions (where appropriate).

The program also provides education and training to community members, and other non-government members, government agencies, service providers and schools about the causes, effects and responses to sexual violence against women and children in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
