Supporting Communities, Starting with Water
Warlga Ngurra Community Centre in Newcastle can expand their programs of community support and learning thanks to generous philanthropic support from Hunter Water.
Warlga Ngurra helps hundreds of Indigenous community members each year through its services which include crisis accommodation, support for women and children escaping domestic violence, and family health education.
Volunteers enhanced the outdoor area to create more productive learning spaces and a more welcoming area for clients needing respite.
The work was coordinated by out(fit), a collective of students, staff, alumni and community volunteers affiliated with the University’s School of Architecture and Built Environment who focus on projects that provide spaces for women, children and groups in need.
This project brought home to me the importance of diversity in teams. I really enjoyed collaborating with different people, all contributing our ideas and sharing our skills for an important outcome.” Sina Saghari, Master of Architecture, 2018
