Colony 47 is transitioning the service delivery of the Aboriginal Community Pathways Program to the Elders Council of Tasmania Aboriginal Corporation.
Martin Hay, the Community Pathways Program Coordinator said it was fantastic that the Elders Council had applied and were successful in their bid to continue developing the program into the future.
“It has been a real honour to work with the Community and create such a dynamic and successful program for Aboriginal people,” said Mr Hay.
“This has been a fantastic program for Aboriginal people in Tasmania and there have been some great highlights with the success of the Deloraine Cultural Trail, Kooparoona Niara Cultural Trail and NAIDOC Week celebrations over its time. NAIDOC week has grown from attendance of 100 in 2015 to in excess of 400 in 2017.”
This year we have celebrated Reconciliation Week 2018 at a breakfast hosted by the Elder’s Council on Tuesday 29 May. Former Australian Human Rights Commission, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner (2009-2016), Mick Gooda, was a guest speaker at the breakfast and his insights were welcomed by over 100 people who attended.
Colony 47 is very proud of the achievements of Community Pathways Program and looks forward to following its progress into the future.
