Aboriginal community services


Find out about our Community Capacity Builder - Aboriginal, Aboriginal Advisory Committee and our Aboriginal Youth Engagement Strategy.

Each have a role in informing Shoalhaven City Council of the needs of our Aboriginal communities.

Walking on Country

The ‘Walking on Country’ project was visioned and developed by Shoalhaven City Council to celebrate the cultural vibrancy of Aboriginal community members in the Shoalhaven region, in partnership and collaboration with community members. It was proudly supported by the NSW Government - Heritage NSW.

Beautifully filmed in the Shoalhaven, ‘Walking on Country’ captures the unique experience of what connection to Country means to the individual Shoalhaven Aboriginal community members.

Community Capacity Builder - Aboriginal Community Connections (CCBA)

The Community Capacity Builder - Aboriginal (CCBA) is in the Community Connections team at Shoalhaven City Council.

The CCBA's role is a vital link between local Aboriginal communities of the Shoalhaven and Council.

The CCBA promotes Council’s facilities and services to the community and provides advice to Council on the issues and needs of Aboriginal communities.

Aboriginal Advisory Committee (AAC)

The AAC was established in 1997 to advise Council of the needs of Aboriginal people living in the Shoalhaven.

It gives Aboriginal communities the opportunity to inform and participate in Council decision making.

Aboriginal youth engagement strategy

Shoalhaven City Council’s Aboriginal Youth Engagement Strategy is a guide for those working with Aboriginal young people across a range of community sectors including local government.

It aims to inform how organisations can best work with Aboriginal young people.
