About

KPAC exists to support the Aboriginal Community of Broken Hill

BECAUSE - The grass-roots indigenous community in Broken Hill and surrounding region are experiencing isolation and multi-generational disadvantage, and have high rates of alcohol and drug abuse, and participation in crime.

WE BELIEVE - Providing infrastructure, a place to gather and meet, which will support in the form of engagement activities, connection to services, and creating a sense of community reducing  the occurrence of poor and unhealthy life decisions.

SO WE PROVIDE - Transport and Leadership to bring the Indigenous Community together to participate in a variety of healthy engagement activities within the local region.

THAT LEADS TO - Strengthened community relationships, employment, skills development opportunities like mentoring, supervisor roles, and volunteering, leading to improved individual self-esteem and healthier life choices by the Indigenous Community.

AND RESULTS IN - A reduction in intergenerational disadvantage and isolation in the Indigenous Community in Broken Hill and districts.
