Congratulations to Tiraapendi Wodli for a successful Hub launch!

The new "Syd Sparrow Training Room" was unveiled yesterday at the Tiraapendi Wodli Port Adelaide hub with a host of special guests including Auntie Yvonne Agius, Meegan Sparrow and Meegan and Syd's daughters, Aboriginal community advocates, Premier Marshall, Minister Lensink, Shona Reid, Hon Dr Robyn Layton QC, Jai O’Toole and the Tiraapendi Wodli team.

“Tiraapendi Wodli” means ‘protecting home’ in Kaurna language. At the heart of Tiraapendi Wodli is the commitment to making sure Aboriginal people’s voices are at the centre of the design and delivery of programs and services.

Syd Sarrow who sadly passed away in 2020, was a founding member of Tiraapendi Wodli and proud Ngarrindjeri man had a deep commitment and longstanding experience in advocating for Aboriginal young people would be very proud to see how Tiraapendi Wodli and the work of the Hub continues to ‘walk alongside’ local families and to expand the many services and supports available to them.

Australian Red Cross and Justice Reinvestment SA (a coalition of individuals and organisations seeking to tackle the underlying causes of crime and reduce offending and incarceration) work closely with Tiraapendi Wodli to provide practical support and advocacy for community-led programs. celebration also marked a continued commitment to Aboriginal families in western Adelaide.
