|The Metro-Adelaide Nunga Mi-Minar Shared Responsibility Agreement is an agreement between the Department of Health and Ageing, the Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, the South Australian Department of Education and Children's Services and Nunga Mi:Minar Women and Children's Shelter. |
The agreement provides for the provision of courses such as counselling and assistance with health issues such as drug and alcohol misuse and literacy. The agreement also provides for the employment of an aboriginal health worker to deliver health promotion information sessions and health screenings and run activities such as healthy eating and cooking programs, nutrition and food awareness courses and the development of a recipe book to be included in the accommodation unit.
Shared Responsibility Agreements are agreements between governments and Indigenous communities to provide discretionary funding in return for community obligations. The new arrangements developed from an initiative of the Council of Australian Governments and replace the previous ATSIC system of funding. For more information see 'Shared Responsibility Agreements' below.
The SRA aims to improve education, health and wellbeing of Aboriginal women experiencing domestic, family and or community violence. This purpose stems from the recognition that the socially disadvantage women who are currently using the Mi:Mingar Services often have no firm cultural links, and are prone to substance misuse, boredom, gambling, suicide, low self-esteem and poor parenting skills, all of which has ramifications for their children. The SRA aims to address these issues through increased involvement with Mi:Mingar in order to strengthen their capacity to manage and improve their lives.
