WHAT IS EMPOWERED COMMUNITIES?

Empowered Communities is a national initiative, which aims for the long-term reform of Indigenous affairs. Empowered communities were designed by Indigenous leaders from 8 regions across Australia, they came together by themselves, to design an Indigenous Empowerment model that seeks to transform the relationships and ways of working between government and First Nations peoples.  Since 2013 the EC regions have expanded from 8 to 10 locations.
