Our Vision

Aboriginal people and communities are empowered to achieve economic wellbeing and self-determination.

Our Focus

Aboriginal people are equal partners in and co-creators of our practice. We advocate, influence, deliver services, build & share knowledge to tackle inequality.

Our Values

Courage: We are committed to advocating strongly for change and creating a more just and inclusive environment

Empowerment: We work to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to be in control and work towards achieving independence, rights, opportunities and recognition of the inherent value of their culture and communities. 

Integrity: Honesty, openness, accountability, fairness and inclusiveness must be at the core of everything we do and are.

Insight: Our actions and services are grounded in our organisational knowledge, evidence and ethics; the wisdom of the people, organisations and communities working alongside us; current thinking and research about what works nationally and internationally.

Innovation: We are a creative and agile organisation, motivated to continually improve, adapt and develop inventive solutions that add value and are valued by the communities we work with.
