Join Friends of Oonah

The Oonah Friends Network will operate as an informal ‘sounding board’ to facilitate two-way communication. The Group will be convened every 4-6 months (or more frequently if an issue deems necessary), for friendly and mutually beneficial discussions.

The Friends network aims to:

  • Represent the voice of the wider Indigenous community of the Yarra Valley and, in particular, the Healesville region
  • Provide organisations and individuals with a channel for direct input to the decision-making and operation of the proposed Oonah Belonging Place
  • Demonstrate to key stakeholder bodies and funding sources that Oonah is able to speak on behalf of the local Indigenous community, while accepting that there will always be differences of opinion on some topics
  • Provide a forum for networking of like-minded people/ organisations, and act as a discussion forum for topics of relevant interest
  • Promote a general feeling within the local community and in the external community that the Healesville Indigenous community is progressing and is able to act cooperatively to address at least major areas of social need
