One of the objectives identified in the Action Plan for Children and Young People is to build awareness in the Walgett community and with those we work with
of the proud legacy, resilience and achievements of local Aboriginal governance and organisations. To this end DEG is working with Walgett Aboriginal Medical Service to produce a series of training resources including histories of our organisations and their work. These resources will be used to induct our staff and educate government agencies and NGOs. We hope it will lead to a greater understanding of the Walgett ACCO philosophies and respect for why ACCO service delivery approaches are effective and must be supported.
