    Akeyulerre Healing Centre – Family Support

    We support Arrernte Elders to pass on knowledge, support Ngankeres in their healing work and collect, prepare and provide bush medicines to our people. We help support people to access the services that are available in the community and provide whole – of – family support, because we realise that people’s health and well-being is linked to the health and well-being of the community. The centre provides a safe environment free from violence and stress, where families support each other. We hold family BBQ nights, conduct country visits, visit Elders in the community and support access to healing ceremony for mainstream services in addition to local families.
