Our Program

Strengthening Our Mob is a place-based social and emotional wellbeing program within the La Perouse Aboriginal community in Sydney. The program offers dedicated staff who provide holistic case management support to members of the La Perouse Aboriginal Community who are experiencing or suffering challenging times.

The team, locally known as SOM, often provides support for mob who need support in navigating the justice system, housing support, clinical and medical, employment and education.


This Strengthening Our Mob program, was designed by leaders of the La Perouse Aboriginal community to service the needs of the La Perouse Aboriginal community. The program is funded by the Primary Health Network, South East Sydney Local Health District and the National Indigenous Australians Agency.
