Yoorana Gunya Family Healing Centre Aboriginal Corporation is an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service. The organisation was established in 1997 and is governed by an all-Aboriginal Board of Directors. Whilst the organisation was originally established to reduce and combat family violence in the community, time has seen the needs of the Aboriginal community change and the focus of the organisation today is on providing primary health care and welfare services.

In 1997 Yoorana Gunya, through internal identification, noted a lack of Aboriginal appropriate health services within the area and formed a much needed service in partnership with Greater Western Area Health Service (GWAHS). This resulted in the opening of our Medical centre.

Yoorana Gunya is a non-profit Aboriginal Corporation funded by the State and Federal Government. Yoorana Gunya is proud to offer high quality health services and evidence based health promotion activities to both the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community to improve their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
