Backbone Organisation


Cape York Partnership believes economic engagement is central to individual and social wellbeing. To that end, we partner with governments, corporate and philanthropists to encourage the emergence of a prosperous yet distinctly Indigenous people, whose children can orbit between communities and the Australian and global world and enjoy the best of both.

The vision for Empowered Communities in our region is to firmly establish and fully operationalise the Empowerment, Development and Productivity agendas under the Empowered Communities framework, in Cape York with six leading/catalyst reform communities, while at the same time managing the transition from Cape York Welfare Reform in relevant communities.
