About Kirrawe

Kirrawe Indigenous Corporation is a not for profit community based organisation providing culturally responsive services and support to meet the needs of the Indigenous community living in Logan and the Gold Coast. The Corporation is a registered Charity and has Public Benevolent Institution and Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.

 

Kirrawe is dedicated to closing the gap and rebuilding those lives affected by the cycles of inter-generational trauma due to loss of Kin, Country, community, and culture. The Directors of Kirrawe believe that cultural identity and those important relational connections are the birth right of every Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child and is what they need to prosper and grow strong.

 

Through culturally inclusive service delivery Kirrawe provides clients with the tools necessary to move forward in their lives by culturally appropriate services, support and programs including:

 

  • Youth Programs – Kirrawe Indigenous Mentoring Service (KIMS), Kirrawe Kids
  • Family Support, advocacy, referral, counseling, & mediation
  • Workshops & cultural events

 

Kirrawe acknowledges the diversity of Aboriginal communities and ensures that all services are innovative, creative, and healing-based. Working together with the Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, Kirrawe is committed to providing strong leadership to influence social change. The future direction of Kirrawe is built on this leadership and ensures our purpose is achieved in a culturally sensitive manner.
