2019

Gugan Gulwan Youth Aboriginal Corporation

Youth Coalition Staff Acknowledgment Award

Gugan Gulwan is an Aboriginal youth centre located in the ACT suburb of Wanniassa. It works with its clients through a range of programs that go well beyond the services provided by most youth centres. They include a Drug and Alcohol/Mental Health program, a Child, Youth, Family Support Program, and a Reconnect Program to support young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Gugan Gulwan gives support to parents and the family unit, focusing on skills development for young people.

In 2019, the Youth Coalition has worked with Gugan Gulwan through the services improvement project, as well as other programs. Their exemplar practice and process to support young people and families has shone through. The Gugan Gulwan team are highly committed and dedicated to their work, and we particularly acknowledge the leadership of Kim Davison who received a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005 and is still in this important role 14 years later.

The Youth Coalition has chosen to acknowledge Gugan Gulwan with this award for their significant contribution to young people and their families in the ACT.
