About us

Yeddung Mura means good pathways in Ngunnawal language. Yeddung Mura (Good Pathways) Aboriginal Corporation was initially started to address a number of gaps identified by Aboriginal elders in the community.  We are a grass roots organisation that works directly in the community to meet the needs of Aboriginal people.

Yeddung Mura (Good Pathways) was registered as an Aboriginal Corporation with the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations (ORIC). The corporation is also registered as a charity (public benevolent institution) with the ACNC.

The corporation aims to help relieve disadvantage within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in the Australian Capital Territory and surrounding region. By partnering with our stakeholders and other agencies, the corporation will provide ‘good pathways’ to clients by providing culturally appropriate housing.

Our guiding principle is ‘Everyone deserves another chance’. Ultimately, our aim is to bring about positive change in the lives of our clients by instilling a greater sense of purpose and value in them.

The primary objective of Yeddung Mura is to support Indigenous detainees and their families through:

  • existing programs (men’s group, culturally appropriate family events)
  • providing safe, culturally appropriate housing
  • providing employment opportunities
  • reintegrating ex-offenders back into the community
