Walan Community Garden

The Walan Wirringah Women’s community garden group. Walan Wirringah – which translates as ‘strong women’ in Wiradjuri – is a group where women could meet once a week in a safe and supportive environment.

The group of community-minded green thumbed women started the Walan Community Garden which sits on the flat near the Macquarie River. Volunteers meet each week sharing stories, recipes, gardening tips and the amazing vegetables they grow.

The Walan group is supported by Orana Support Service

Domestic Violence Support Group

Domestic violence, or family violence, is violent, abusive or intimidating behaviour in a relationship. It can include emotional, sexual, social, financial, spiritual and physical abuse. It’s important to know that it’s not your fault and it’s never acceptable. You have the right to feel safe, respected and supported in your relationships. The DV support group offers people an opportunity to discuss their experiences with others who have shared similar experiences, and to learn from each other.

Gagamin Men's Group

Gagamin – Wiradjuri for “little brother” – brings together young men who want to turn their lives around. The group is a support network for men as they fight to end the cycle of family violence. Most of them are on correction orders. Many of them have been perpetrators of domestic or family violence.

The Gagamin is supported by Orana Support Service.
