What is Empowered Communities?

Empowered Communities is a reform initiative – it is about creating a new and better way for Indigenous organisations and communities to work with each other and with government. The idea behind Empowered Communities is to change the relationship with government from a top-down, one-size-fits-all approach to a level playing field, where Anangu have a respected and strong voice. We believe that this new approach will help ensure that policies and programmes fit in with the priorities and needs of our communities and are therefore more likely to achieve meaningful and lasting outcomes for Anangu of the NPY Lands.
