Akeyulerre's approach is consistent with the philosophy and aims of Children's Ground. It is critical that local people have agency over their future to enable real and enduring change for the next generation of children and their families. A strong cultural identify is critical, building Arrernte values while ensuring that young Aboriginal people are happy and healthy and have skills for the future in a global world.
The vision of the community is to heal people together. Akeyulerre facilitates traditional practices such as ceremonies and the sharing of culture through song, story and dance and connects community members with traditional healers, with bush medicines, bush foods, and each other.
It also provides health and community education and family support. Women who visit the centre also make and distribute traditional bush rubs and balms in the Arrernte community.
