About National Aboriginal Construction Partners
National Aboriginal Construction Partners consists of three not-for-profit Indigenous community corporations:
Marra Worra Worra is the oldest and largest Aboriginal Resource Agency in the Kimberley region of WA. It provides support services to existing and emerging groups in the Fitzroy River Valley by assisting them to develop as strong, autonomous communities and organisations. With approximately 100 staff, Marra Worra Worra currently manages approximately 450 houses for the State Government Department of Housing and administers the Community Development Program for the Office of Prime Minister and Cabinet. In addition to its core operations, Marra Worra Worra also has investments into a variety of enterprises, the more significant ones including Kimberley Regional Service Providers, Ngiyali Roadhouse, Fitzroy Hardware and Marra Worra Worra Mechanical.
Waanyi Aboriginal Corporation is a Queensland based Aboriginal community-owned corporation with substantial business interests in the mining, civil and building sectors. Waanyi Aboriginal Corporation aims to assist in the relief of poverty, misfortune, destruction, disadvantage, distress, dispossession and suffering amongst the Waanyi Aboriginal people.
This is done through the provision of housing, education, health care services and facilities, transportation and communication services, and land under secure title for dispossessed Waanyi Aboriginal people. The Waanyi Aboriginal Corporation also exists to take advantage of investment opportunities that will assist the funding of the charitable objectives of the corporation that includes education, training, employment and cultural initiatives.
Nirrumbuk Aboriginal Corporation is a Broome (WA) based Aboriginal community, controlled and managed organisation driven by an Aboriginal membership. The organisation’s primary objectives are to build the capacity of the Aboriginal community and individuals of the region, and to end hardship, suffering and helplessness in Indigenous people within the Kimberley by building capacity and fostering self-sufficiency. Nirrumbuk Aboriginal Corporation collaborates with individuals, communities, organisations and the Government to build a better future for Aboriginal people in the Kimberley.
