    Summary Information:
    The Nauiyu Nambiyu 'Aquatic Recreation Healthy Communities Project' Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) is an agreement between the Nauiyu Nambiyu Indigenous Community, the Commonwealth Government and Royal Life Saving Society Australia. The purpose of the agreement is to upgrade the local swimming pool and provide training for maintenance and the conduct of swimming and water safety courses.

    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.
