Many Years ago when Aunty Issie was a welfare officer she was able to get a poster made about the "children" this is on the top left corner in the new poster
We wanted a poster this year After much discussion with we came up with
"AUNTY ISSIE SAYS PROTECT OUR CHILDREN"
"AND THEY WILL PROTECT OUR CULTURE"

The ADAC led consortium, which includes the Aboriginal Health Council SA (AHCSA) and Aboriginal Family Support Services (AFSS). The Consortium have been recommended by the Commonwealth Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Senator the Hon Nigel Scullion, MP, as the preferred provider for the North West region of SA Residential Rehabilitation facility.
This is a huge bonus for the region and also for the Aboriginal led consortium. We are looking forward to working with everyone in the region to ensure that the Residential Rehabilitation is developed and operated for the benefit of Aboriginal people across SA in dealing with alcohol and other drugs.
We know its going to be hard work for awhile to get everything up and running but we know that we are up to the challenge and look forward to the facility being opened in the 2014/2015 financial year.
We will endeavour to keep people updated on progress via our website and again I would like to congratulate the Consortium members the start of a successful outcome
Great News everyone Its Official
