    Summary Information:
    The North Eastern Tasmania 'Family Wellbeing Course' Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) is an agreement between the North Eastern Tasmanian Indigenous Community and the Commonwealth and Tasmanian Governments to establish a TAFE course for Aboriginal people as counsellors for people affected by family violence.

    Shared Responsibility Agreements are agreements between governments and Indigenous communities tom 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.
