Indigenous Engagement

NORTEC are leaders in engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Our Indigenous Engagement team is led by Simone Nelson, proud community member from Fingal Head on Bundjalung Country and supported by Indigenous icon and AFL legend Nicky Winmar and an experienced team of Indigenous Engagement Consultants.

With services delivered by a dedicated team of Indigenous Engagement Consultants, who are community leaders in their own right throughout our footprint, we have a deep appreciation and respect for the culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities we connect with. Our respect extends far below the surface, with our deep connection to Indigenous culture and partnerships.

NOTE: This map is derived from The Australian Institute of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) Map of Indigenous Australia to depict the locations of NORTEC site offices across the Aboriginal Nations it services. NORTEC respects that there are different interpretations of cultural boundaries. This map is therefore indicative, not prescriptive.

Community Initiatives

We enable our community partners.

We do not provide grants to other community organisations. We are a charity and not-for-profit organisation ourselves. Providing one off grants for us is not a sustainable investment, we are proud to support our community through sponsorships and programs that have lasting positive effects.

We also engage in partnerships that connect and strengthen community organisations with the network and resources that are available to us. Our model enables community organisations to establish, repair, maintain and/or upgrade their infrastructure projects, which further enables those organisations to generate returns to support their own sustainability.

If you are a not-for-profit, local, state, territory or Australian Government agency and are looking for assistance with your community project.
