Balee Program

Balee Program, a local Boon Wurrung word meaning ‘Family’ is the new name and direction for the previously named Planned Activity Group (PAG). This represents the inclusiveness in the local Aboriginal community and is open to the whole family to attend.

This group is held weekly from 10am to 2pm and is facilitated by the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community and Access Support Officer.

The group have partnerships with local Mornington Peninsula and Frankston community controlled organisations, service providers and land management authorities. A range of culturally appropriate activities and outings are scheduled throughout the year long program.
