Engaging with Community at Djirra’s Sister’s Day Out

May 16, 2024

Sisters Day Out® is Djirra’s long-standing wellbeing workshop, where Aboriginal women can support each other, enjoy a little pampering, get information about rights and options, and engage with support services available. Sisters Day Out® workshops are held regularly in a community where everyone is welcome.

On Tuesday 23 of April, LiverWELL staff held a stall at the Dandenong Sisters Day Out. The day was filled with many meaningful conversations about how we can all take better care of our livers.

Djirra’s community education and early intervention and prevention programs (Sisters Day Out®, Young Luv® and Dilly Bag) focus on family violence prevention by:

  • drawing on cultural strength to increase resilience.
  • reducing social isolation and vulnerability to family violence
  • promoting healthy relationships
  • creating awareness about the ‘power and control’ dynamics of family violence and family violence red flags.

Djirra stands firm with Aboriginal women against family violence and deliver campaigns to make sure Aboriginal women’s voices are heard, victim blaming can be stopped and perpetrators can be held accountable.
