Waltja’s Work

Waltja works generally with community women to address the major issues affecting Aboriginal families in their communities. In particular, Waltja’s work has focussed on addressing the many significant gaps in service delivery for families, women, children, young people, old people, people with disabilities and men, in remote communities.

Waltja is an advocate for community-based services, and a go-between or mediating organisation linking Aboriginal people in remote communities to service providers and funding bodies. Waltja is also a service provider, providing training, health, nutrition, disability and youth services under Commonwealth and NT-funded programs (see Waltja’s Projects).

Waltja’s Publications Unit produces high quality books, reports, posters, and the Waltja magazine Family News.
