Our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander & multi-cultural team provide diverse on-country experiences and support to participate in wider community cultural activities
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family structures are cohesive forces which bind First Nations people together in all parts of Australia. Traditionally the First Nations family was a collaboration of clans composed of mothers, fathers, uncles, aunties, sisters, brothers, cousins and so on. In today’s terms it is known as an extended family. For First Nations people our families provide psychological and emotional support which is important to our wellbeing.
Deadly Inspiring Youth Doing Good (DIYDG) is a Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Corporation with community ties to the Cairns and Surrounding region. DIYDG does not discriminate and acknowledges that our community is vastly diverse, hence why we extend our membership and support to include and empower, young people and community of all nations.
We have a deep respect and connection to each other which exists beyond bloodlines.
DIYDG believe that every young person regardless of the path they walk has a place in our family. We embrace our differences and celebrate our diversity in all we do.
Everyone needs to feel that their world is a safe place where people; care about their wellbeing, feel respected and supported, and are empowered to work through life’s challenges.
We know when these needs are met that we develop a sense of belonging and know our place in the world.
With such a high disproportion of young people in care and a very strained Child Safety service system, DIYDG have developed a program providing a diverse range of support services to young people in care or who are disconnected from family culture and kin.
DIYDG have been empowered by the community to build the village that raises our children. Elders within our who have life experience, volunteer their time in our space to connect young people who are at all stages of their journey.
Donations of resources have meant that the organisation was able to channel profits directly back into meaningful activities that showcase resilience, inspire change and build future leaders.
As a First Nations organisation committed to empowering our next generation, DIYDG are seeking support to deliver a generalist youth service, OUR WAY. DIYDG achieves outcomes by applying the 5 core Child Placement Principals;
