WD provides support to individuals and family units who have been in contact with the justice system through imprisonment or through factors that increase the risk of imprisonment.
If you have been charged by the police and face going to court – don’t face it alone. We can help you on your journey. We support clients with a diverse range of needs including mental health and disability and can help identify and treat underlying support needs including undiagnosed disorders by accessing specialist support.
We provide a holistic service that is molded around the needs of each client and have male & female support workers available.
The team are based in Gunnedah onsite at Gunida Gunyah Office and operate as an outreach service in the North West NSW region (excluding Tamworth & Moree).
The program has been developed to support individuals and families who find themselves in regular contact with the police and/or are going through the court system and may be at risk of becoming incarcerated. The program also supports individuals who have been released from incarceration that would like support to break the cycle.
Warranggal Dhiyan can support you and your family to work together to address any issues or problems in your life that may be having an impact on your ability to stay out of contact with the police and court system.

The service supports youth to identify mental health-related issues, behavioral concerns, and lack of engagement at school. Youth clients will be supported through intensive case management to address and work through any identified issues. Clients will be given information and advice and will have access to specialist support services including assessments (Psychological & cognitive) and counseling, through our referral process.
Our youth group occurs once a week during school time. The youth participate in a range of positive self-reflecting activities that build self-esteem, confidence, and resilience. The group is a supervised peer-led group that works with program staff to co-design youth-focused programs, activities & community events for youth.
Activities will be delivered to provide the youth with positive reinforcement and encourage youth to stay engaged with Warranggal Dhiyan. The youth engagement activities have a focus on fostering positive relationships and social interactions in a safe and culturally responsive environment. Activities include community outings, cultural activities, and life skills development.
