Gallang Place Open Day

Gallang Place Launches a New Cultural and Healing Hub

Gallang Place has provided culturally appropriate counselling and healing services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in South East Queensland for 20 years.  After 17 years in their old Queenslander in West End they are now setting up a new Community Hub in Cannon Hill.

Noeleen Lopes, Gallang Place’s CEO said:

 “This is more than just an exciting new office, it’s a place where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations can share their ideas, culture and deliver programs to educate, support and heal our communities.”

This Community Hub will accommodate:

  • Culturally sensitive healing and counselling support services for families and individuals
  • A support team focussed on Indigenous youth at risk
  • Service teams to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders with persistent and severe mental health problems
  • Culturally sensitive counsellor training programs
  • BlackCard delivers Cultural Education and Training Workshops
  • Queensland Indigenous Family Violence Legal Service
  • Meeting and training rooms

Mundanara Bayles, CEO of BlackCard, added:

“This is a great new space that not only lets us work closely with other like-minded organisations, but gives our Elders a base to build community networks and supports.”

Marja Elizabeth, CEO of Queensland Indigenous Family Violence Legal Service, added:

“We are fortunate and happy to be working in partnership with Gallang in providing legal and support services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children. The new facility demonstrates how Indigenous organisations from different sectors can work together collaboratively for the benefit of the community.”

The Hub is at 57 Southgate Ave, Cannon Hill and will hold an ‘open house’ Friday 4 July from 9:30 with the official launch at 10:00 am.
