Are you a part of the Central Coast Aboriginal Community?

Have Your Say

Become a member of the Joint Decision Making (JDM) Community Panel and have your say about the services provided to the Central Coast Aboriginal Community.

Aboriginal community members currently living and/or working on Darkinjung Country who have an understanding of and connection to the local community and its needs are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EoI) to participate on Joint Decision Making (JDM) Community Panels.

Joint Decision Making is a community-driven decision-making process that strives to identify and reward programs and service providers which genuinely build long-term, sustainable community empowerment.

It does this by convening Aboriginal Community Panels to assess whether proposed programs and initiatives significantly impacting on our community are aligned to the ‘Pathway to Empowerment’ reform agenda.

The below information pack outlines the aim and scope of JDM and the Community Panel role in the process.
