There is a notable gap in knowledge concerning how SEWB manifests and functions within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth, particularly regarding community-based youth group settings. Conducted at the bequest of program provider CatholicCare Social Services of Toowoomba, this qualitative case study undertakes an assessment of the effectiveness of the Whaddup Youth Group of Toowoomba. This research considers social and emotional wellbeing from an Indigenous Australian perspective to identify and assess wellbeing outcomes of the program. The Whaddup community voice will be explored to uncover and measure SEWB elements that are considered important to regional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth group success.
