Council has strategic partnerships with a number of organisations, groups and bodies throughout the community.
COOTAMUNDRA ABORIGINAL WORKING PARTY (CAWP)
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) Bala-yanhi Miya (Together We’re Working), was signed between CGRC and CAWP
The purpose of the Bala-yanhi Miya is to formalise the agreement of The Parties to lay founding principles and set out specific commitments for the ongoing relationship and mutual cooperation with CAWP and Council. Both Parties share the desire and goodwill to work jointly to improve the presences and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues in planning and services provided by Council with a view to improved Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation, employment, health, and wellbeing outcomes. Alongside this is the wish for broader understanding and recognition amongst the wider Cootamundra-Gundagai communities of the regions’ rich Aboriginal heritage and proud tradition.
