Welcome to Yamurrah
Yamurrah is a word woven from the sacred initials and cherished names of our united kins. It symbolises the profound act of following the sovereign tracks etched by our wise Ancestors, revered Elders, and the trailblazers who preceded us. With utmost integrity, honour, and unwavering determination, as we traverse these sacred tracks, we do so with cultural and professional integrity, boundless honour, and resolute purpose. With each step we take, we also have the responsibility to create new tracks and plant seeds of growth and hope for future generations. Yamurrah represents a continuous journey of respect, learning and legacy, ensuring that the tracks we walk today will create a solid foundation for the generations to come.
Embrace the opportunity to gain valuable insights from culturally and professionally diverse First Nations perspectives and experiences.
“Our business ethos is about giving back and this is who we are, our essence, our purpose and our identity. Who are we if we cannot give back to the people who need it most, especially when we know that our communities are not always accessing mainstream services.
They come to us and people like us and we have to be there to hold that and importantly respond to this. We need help doing this. It is only through our self-determination that we can give back on our own terms and in ways that are survivor and community focused. Giving back is the Yamurrah way”.
Rowena Lawrie | Director | Yamurrah
