Barkly Region facility rehabilitated

The Registrar of Indigenous Corporations, Anthony Beven, has today announced the end of special administration of the Barkly Region Alcohol and Drug Abuse Advisory Group Aboriginal Corporation (BRADAAG).

BRADAAG was established in 1982 to provide a safe sobering-up shelter for Aboriginal people. More than 35 years on, the organisation has evolved to provide residential rehabilitation, counselling, outreach and education services to address drug and alcohol issues. It also plays an advocacy role for these services in the Tennant Creek region.

Indigenous corporate sector maturing

In the ten years of its operation, the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (CATSI Act) has set the scene for significant improvements in business and governance outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporations. The latest yearbook of the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations (ORIC), just released, provides details for the 2016–17 year as well as some long-range comparisons.
