Highly respected Elder of Noongar Boodjar, Uncle Greg Little is a man of respect and dignity.

For the past two decades he has worked as a Prison Support Officer at the Bunbury Regional Prison, and now plays a major role in the management, leadership and mentoring of the prisoner peer support group.

Uncle Greg is an active member of the prisoner risk assessment group and provides supportive crisis counselling, group and family counselling. His work has helped inmates make positive connections with their families and each other.
As part of the restorative justice process, Uncle Greg fosters programs and events to assist Noongar and other Indigenous prisoners to recover their culture. In Yarning Circles, Greg provides guidance, instruction and direction to the men, needed for strengthening them for the future.  

Uncle Greg is deeply respected by Indigenous and non-Indigenous people throughout communities in the South West of Western Australia. They come to pay their respects, ask advice, listen quietly, and respond to his direction. 

Uncle Greg has a core set of values which he role models every day. He treats people with respect and accords everybody dignity regardless of their family, ethnicity and position in life.
