Become a Foster Carer

Becoming Culturally Strong

Our transition coaches use a Cultural Practice Framework called, Nitja Yorga Nop Bidi Koort Mia. This framework helps coaches to understand how young Aboriginal people within Yorganop’s Home Stretch service can be offered cultural knowledge and activities throughout their journey with Home Stretch WA.


The framework has been co-designed with:

  • Young people
  • Yorganop’s Cultural Unit and other staff
  • Yorganop’s Homestretch WA team
  • Young lived experience consultants
  • The Anglicare WA Community of Practice team.

 Yorganop is committed to ensuring every young Aboriginal person is given the opportunity to learn about their culture and flourish.
