National Talkblack 271022

We had:

Delia Rickard, Deputy Chair ACCC Consumer Rights, talking about the statement in relation to Youpla/ the Aboriginal Community Benefit Fund. The ACCC is warning funeral services providers not to mislead consumers about prices and to act honestly and transparently in their dealings with Indigenous Australians affected by the March 2022 collapse of the Youpla Group (formerly the Aboriginal Community Benefit Fund).

Renea Camilleri, Women’s Health Week and Community Engagement Manager at Jean Hailes for Women’s Health, talking about empowering First Nations women to learn about and manage polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a hormonal condition that affects one in 10 women and girls in Australia. Regrettably, it’s even more common in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, affecting up to one in six women.
