Elders & Community Support

Keeping individual members connected to the larger community is an important part of NBY’s social support.

The Elders Support Program also provides material support to our valued Yawuru elders to improve their living conditions and NBY’s Elder Support Officer helps elders in meeting appointments and other obligations.

Programs such as ‘Fishing for Elders’ provides a culturally rich experience for younger community members which also becomes part of the traditional support networks through the distribution of fish to elders at the end of a good day’s fishing.

NBY offers material assistance to community members with disabilities and can provide support to community members in times of distress or crisis such as medical or funeral requirements.
