BRUS would like to assist all Aboriginal Youth that are affected by the East Gippsland Bushfires to stay connected and engaged in community through healthy active lifestyles.
Their focus is to engage young people in active sports activities and events, creating a culturally safe space for young people and families to gather together and unite around health, wellbeing, relieving stress and gaining support from the community.
