Woor-Dungin

Aboriginal Partnership Program

The Aboriginal Partnership Program is our core activity.

Time spent developing and maintaining genuine, respectful relationships with our Aboriginal community-controlled partner organisations is the most important ingredient for achieving successful outcomes for Woor-Dungin.

We currently work with six partner organisations:

Our partners' priorities, as identified in their strategic plans, directly inform the development of all Woor-Dungin's activities, projects and programs.

Priorities identified by our partners include maintaining culture, securing resources for community-identified activities, and increasing employment.

Accordingly the following activities, projects and programs spring directly from our partners’ requests.

We facilitate quarterly Income Generation and Resource Group (IGRG) workshops, where our Aboriginal partner organisations meet representatives from philanthropy and pro bono service providers. Through introductions made at IGRG workshops, our partners have been successful in obtaining philanthropic funding and pro bono support for key projects identified by their communities.

The Maarni Aboriginal Women’s Leadership Program was established to develop the employment and governance skills of Aboriginal women identified by our Aboriginal partner organisations as emerging leaders.

The Aboriginal Community Worker Support Program supports staff and board members of our Aboriginal partner organisations in dealing effectively with issues that impact on their ability to undertake their roles.

The Respectful Relationships program was established to help philanthropy to increase its investment in, and to engage more effectively and respectfully with, Aboriginal community-controlled organisations.

The Criminal Record Discrimination Project, a Woor-Dungin-led collaboration between community and legal organisations, was established to respond to calls from Woor-Dungin’s Aboriginal partner organisations for a response to the range of negative impacts their communities face as a result of the unregulated disclosure of, and inappropriate reliance on, old and irrelevant criminal history. These impacts include social and economic exclusion, and poor justice and health outcomes.
