We create strong partnerships to see kids growing up happy, healthy and strong in thriving Indigenous Australian communities. We work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities who have invited us to join them in achieving positive and lasting change.

Support Australia Program Subscribe to Action News Online

Since 1974 World Vision has been working in partnership with Indigenous Australian communities to support positive wellbeing outcomes for children, families and communities.

Our work involves building strong partnerships where Indigenous communities invite us to share World Vision’s development expertise with them and work together. We support them as they draw on their strengths and capacity to overcome disadvantage and raise strong, healthy and happy children.

We implement community development projects across urban, regional and remote Australia, focussing on a range of community priorities such as Early Childhood Care and Development, Youth Development, education and leadership, and support community involvement in the decisions that affect them. Our work spans from the Pilbara in Western Australia to the remote Warlpiri region of the Northern Territory and across to the heart of Sydney.

It is through strong partnerships, community voices and local solutions for local needs, rather than a one-size fits-all-approach, that positive and lasting change can be achieved.
