Welcome to Gurehlgam!
This web site is intended to inform you about the activities, people and objectives of this company. The short version is that we are an Aboriginal owned and run NFP that aims to improve the life of Aboriginal people and families in Northern New South Wales. We do this by professionally managing community service programs and supporting our people in whatever way we can. If you would like to know more, contact us or, if you are in Grafton, call in for a coffee and a chat.

CLARENCE VALLEY INDIGENOUS SUPPORT SERVICE
Regrettably, this program is only funded till June this year and the chances of refunding are looking slim.
Gurehlgam is in talks with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet but with the political situation so uncertain, we are not confident about what will happen to this program. To protect our obligations, Sharon and Debby are winding up some projects and will not be able to continue to deliver their excellent service. The office will remain open to help clients and work with other agencies until we know for sure what will happen in July.
