ABOUT US

Anindilyakwa Housing Aboriginal Corporation (AHAC) was established in 2018 to facilitate decision making by Anindilyakwa people in respect of the ownership, location, design, and occupation of community housing across the Groote Archipelago.

This includes the communities of Angurugu, Umbakumba, Milyakburra, and Satellite communities of Malkala, Bartalumba Bay, Little Paradise, Four Mile, Thompsons Bay, Emerald River, Salt Lake, and Yenbakwa.

AHAC works with a variety of stakeholders including the Department of Territory Families, Housing and Communities, Anindilyakwa Land Council, The Fulcrum Agency, HealthHabitat, and local contractors, GEBIE Civil & Construction and Aminjarrinja Enterprises Aboriginal Corporation.

PARTNERS

PROGRAMS

After working on the Housing for Health program in 2021, we realised we needed to review and assess how the program was delivered within our communities and Homelands.Β  After this assessment we developed a more community inclusive delivery model to better meet community expectations.

We will work closely with local stakeholders and building companies to complete inspections with a focus on improving the nine healthy living principals in all homes in the Archipelago and engage with local traditional owners who would like to learn the basic skills to maintain their homes.Β  We will provide a culturally appropriate educational program to all households with a view to improving the living conditions of all community and Homelands residents.Β 

The program will be delivered by our Team for our Communities.Β  COVID has delayed the commencement of the program, but we look forward to delivering a sustainable community program focused on improving health, liveability and housing standards.

HOMELANDS SERVICES

AHAC commenced provision of Homelands Services to 40 houses in the communities of Bartalumba Bay, Little Paradise, Malkala, Emerald River, Yenbakwa, Leskie Pools, Thompson Bay, Salt Lake and Four Mile in July 2020. The services provided include housing maintenance and municipal services.

We have developed strong relationships within each Homeland, commenced Homelands Housing Reference Group meetings to ensure consistency in messaging and a strong and cohesive voice for our Homelands residents.

πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ🏿 AHAC TRAINING UPDATE πŸ’ͺ🏿πŸ’ͺ

So far this year, AHAC have participated in a variety of training experiences.

πŸ˜ƒ We had Tyson and Veronica from We Al-Li to come to Eylandt and deliver an Indigenous Approach to developing skills for trauma informed care and practice. This training enabled our team members to learn strategies and to gain a better understanding of generational trauma in our indigenous community.

πŸ›» A week before cyclone Megan hit Groote Eylandt our Housing Maintenance Officers and Community Housing Officers participated in 4WD and Chainsaw Training with Matt from New Territory Training. These new skills proved invaluable for our team who were on the ground assisting with recovery efforts.

πŸ‘πŸΏ We would like to say Thank You to We Al-li's Tyson and Veronica for providing such valuable training.

πŸ‘πŸΏ Thank You to Matty for delivering beneficial training to our staff and just in time!

πŸ‘πŸΏ Also Thank You to GEMCO Community Grants without their support the logistics and training would not have been possible.
