CDP


The Remote Jobs and Community Development Program (CDP) is part of the Australian Government’s commitment to the Closing the Gap strategy.

The CDP aims to achieve social and economic development through active participation, jobs and stronger communities in remote Australia. The program is a jobs first approach which supports individuals to participate in employment, training and activities that contribute to the strength and sustainability of their communities. In April 2013, WNAC was successful in becoming the CDP provider for Derby, Looma and Gibb River region. As such Winun Ngari Employment Services (WNES) is responsible for delivering the program to the following communities: Karmalinunga, Burrinunga, Djimung Nguda, Budulah, Mowanjum, Looma, Jarlmadangah, Yumurlun, Balginjir, Bidan, Imintji, Kupungarri, Ngallagunda, Dodnun, Kandiwal, Tirraslntji and Yulumbu.

Through CDP, WNES will help Aboriginal people in remote regions obtain and retain jobs. Where people are not working, the program will ensure they are participating in WFD activities that contribute to developing strong skills and sustainable communities. WNES assists job seekers into either employment or participation in community development activities according to their participation requirements and the level of their assessed work capacity. The WNES team under leadership of Ben Burton is continually developing innovative and diverse programs which ensure the widest possible involvement of Aboriginal people.

For further assistance please don’t hesitate to contact the Employment Service team on 08 9191 2569 or drop in to the office at 48 Clarendon Street, Derby.
