Aboriginal capacity building project

The Aboriginal NGO capacity building project aims to strengthen Aboriginal communities to support the development of up to 18 new Aboriginal community-controlled out-of-home care agencies. Many of these agencies will be in geographical locations that currently have limited service delivery.

The capacity-building project aims to build resilience and create effective service delivery through development of a skilled and qualified Aboriginal workforce and accredited agencies.

Capacity building involves a range of strategies in relation to the development of Aboriginal OOHC services across the state. These include: direct consultation with communities, negotiations with existing agencies and potential organisations in both the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal sector.

Capacity building sits within the Transition Team at AbSec. The TPO Capacity Building Officer provides advice and assistance on a range of transition issues, including the development of MOUs and other partnership arrangements.
