You can find out more about the Bugil Wernbe program in the attached flyer or on our website https://ngunyajarjum.com/tei/
Funded as a Targeted Earlier Intervention (TEI) program, Bugil Wernbe delivers flexible support to children, young people, families and communities in need where it has come to the attention of Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) that they are vulnerable. Tabulam District has been identified by DCJ due to geographic and social isolation factors, lack of service delivery on community and community demographics.
The program is fully funded 2021 to 2025 to offer support to families and community by linking to services and delivering projects and providing individual support to residents which enhances parenting capacity, family cohesion and wellbeing for Jarjums. As the number of our children reported to be at significant risk of harm continues to grow, we are pleased to have secured this program to target support to these remote communities and will continue to seek out opportunities to get similar funding for other communities across the Far North Coast of NSW.
