Governor General’s visit

14 July 2014

Wunan hosts the Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove. The Governor General toured the Kimberley in June and visited Wunan Tuesday 24 June to learn about our organisation, in particular the multi award winning Transitional Housing Program. Opening with Mr Ian Trust’s River Diagram followed by a briefing from Transitional Housing Manager, Michele Brett and Money Mentor, Cherie McAdam, feedback from the Governor General was positive and encouraging. His Excellency commended the efforts of Wunan and he felt the work being done was “empowering”, “uplifting” and “motivating”. The visit ended with an introduction to Transitional Housing tenants Jeremy and Lizette Manning who told of their journey toward home ownership and the positive impact the Program is having on their lives.
