The Moorditch Gurlongga Association (MGA) is an Aboriginal organisation providing a range of services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people within the South East metropolitan region of Perth, Western Australia. MGA was established in 1985 to provide childcare services to the local Aboriginal and Torres Straight Island community and has been operating for over 30 years.

Today MGA (trading as Coolabaroo) provides a range of services to people from all walks of life and cultures although our focus is to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We do this by providing a suite of wrap around services through the following programs:

  • Coolabaroo Neighbourhood Centre
  • Coolabaroo Housing Services
  • Coolabaroo Community Services
  • Coolabaroo Services

We practice a holistic approach to service delivery that is culturally appropriate, tailored for both individuals and the community, that are inclusive of culture, health, housing, training and education.

The organisation's future focus is to continue to support and strengthen Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families.

Our continued success in working with the community and our ability to secure government funding to deliver our services will also be strengthened, with the aim to increase our self-determination, innovation and sustainable business development practices.

We look forward to the challenges of the future and we are confident that we are positioned to continue to provide quality services to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families.
