Community Services and Development

 

Ngaanyatjarra Community Services & Development 

Our Community Services and Development Division manages a diverse range of employment and community development activities on the Ngaanyatjarra Lands.  These activities include the Community Development Program (CDP), Municipal Services program, Financial Wellbeing and Capability program, Sports Development Project plus many more. 

 

Under CDP, jobseekers receive assistance from us to help build their skills, get a job and participate to their maximum capacity in community development and work-like activities that benefit their community.  We work closely with each Ngaanyatjarra Community to facilitate a range of different participation activities and provide both CDP participants and employers with a single point of contact for employment opportunities on the Ngaanyatjarra Lands. 

 

We have approximately 550 CDP participants on our caseload and in 2015/16 placed 94 job seekers into casual, part-time or full-time employment. 

 

Under the Municipal Services program we are responsible for the delivery of municipal services to everyone living in on the Ngaanyatjarra Lands.   Municipal services provided include the provision of a reliable potable water supply, generation of electricity 24 hours per day, the operation and maintenance of community airstrips, the operation and maintenance of deep and septic sewerage systems, internal road maintenance, landscaping, dust control, fire management and community management services.

 

Through the Financial Wellbeing and Capability Program we provide services to Ngaanyatjarra residents and families that will improve their financial capability, resilience and lifetime wellbeing. 

 

The Ngaanyatjarra Sports Development Project is a new initiative that commenced in 2016.  The focus of this project is on the development of sustained sporting fixtures and opportunities all year round for juniors and adults.
