What We Are About
Wadjak Northside is about finding ways of improving opportunities and experiences for our people and our communities. We have evolved into a dynamic organisation that supports Aboriginal people to create a strong, healthy and prosperous future.
We have opened an Aboriginal Resource Centre in Balga, Perth and we are continuing to develop the Centre with groups, programs, activities and events running from the Centre as well as creating a business enterprise that will support the Centre and its communities into the future.
We are proud to have built on the hard work and vision of community members who have come before us to create an Aboriginal organisation that is dedicated and committed to improving the lives of our people in the northern suburbs of Perth.
Growing at a rapid rate to service the needs of our community, engagement programs are run weekly for youth and adults alike. Click here for the weekly program.
Strategic Plan 2023 - 2026
The Wadjak Northside Board of members, on behalf of the community, has endorsed a draft Strategic Plan of the organisation, and which is currently under development. The organisation welcomes feedback and further input in the coming months before finalisation of this plan.
Please contact us at the Centre if you would like to look at a copy of the our current Strategic Plan.
As well as members of our community working hard on Wadjak Northside projects, we also have the help and support of various organisations and businesses:
Balga Senior High School, City of Stirling, Sudbury Community House, DCPFS Mirrabooka, The Smith Family, Edmund Rice Mirrabooka, Ngala, North Metropolitan Public Health Unit, Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet, West Metro Crime Prevention Office and Watermark Designs
