Glenelg Shire Council’s ‘Glenelg Aboriginal Partnerships Agreement’ is the third document developed between Council and the local community, building on previous agreements. The Agreement is structured in two parts. The first part outlines the broad principles that underpin the Agreement and frames the purposes and context of the Agreement. The second part outlines the specific tasks that have been agreed to be completed within the timeframe of the Agreement and allocates the responsibility for the completion and reporting on the work. Included in this second part is the requirement for an independent evaluation of what is being done to ensure that the aims of the Agreement are being best met.
The Glenelg Aboriginal Partnerships Agreement was created through Council’s partnership with Winda-Mara Aboriginal Corporation, Dhauwurd-Wurrung Elderly and Community Health Service and Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation.
