Waminda, Women’s Health and Welfare Aboriginal Corporation
Kalinda Wills and Loretta Longbottom from Waminda, with Amelia Druhan from CRANAplus at the 2022 NAATSIHWP Conference. Waminda received the Models of Care & Career Pathways Innovation Award, sponsored by CRANAplus.
“We have a model of care that is holistic and a cultural foundation central to everything we do. The women that come through Waminda – there’s a ‘no wrong door’ approach. We stand side-by-side and support them on their journey, to take care of their wellness and look forward to being the best versions of themselves they can be.
“Our women that work for Waminda, whatever their career goals, we support them to be trained in that area… Our health practitioners who accepted the award – it’s a reflection of what they’ve achieved, how they do the work. To be recognised by your own people, through our own organisations that we partner with and are part of… it was really welcomed.”
- Hayley Longbottom, a proud Jerrinja/Cullunghutti/Wandi Wandian woman from Waminda, Women’s Health and Welfare Aboriginal Corporation on NSW’s South Coast.
