Traditional Owner Estates

Supporting and assisting Aboriginal Corporations and communities to achieve their self-determination goals and aspirations within a culturally respectful process.

Traditional Owner Estates

We support communities to achieve their aspirations for tangible development outcomes on and off Country by applying a quadruple-bottom-line approach.

We consider the opportunities and interdependencies between Community and Culture, Economy and Infrastructure, Environment and Country and Governance and Administration.

We have relationships with major funding bodies spanning government and private corporate philanthropy. We keep informed of current opportunities available to our clients in the social impact investment arena. We have successfully gained seed and business development funds for our clients from federal agencies.

All projects are guided and informed by an appropriate level of broad, rich and deep engagement with community and key stakeholders.
