Who are we ?

MoneyMob Talkabout is a not-for-profit organisation with a vision to empower Aboriginal people and communities to achieve economic wellbeing and self-determination. We operate a money support hub in the APY Lands, with a permanant base at Pukatja, which provides a one-stop shop for local community members to interact with the broader economy in a safe and supportive environment. We regularly outreach to all communities across the APY Lands, as well as Oodnadatta.
