Yorgum considers that a complimentary part of the counselling work is the need to provide community development and education in an attempt to reduce levels of violence in the community.
The aim of the community development program is to raise awareness about family violence to Aboriginal communities, families and individuals and to develop ways of enhancing the safety of family members. This is achieved by building on the cultural strengths of community, through activities and strategies identified by the community, as relevant and suitable to them.
