OUR WAY OF WORKING
Pathways to shared prosperity
Tribal Wave Assembly seek to work in partnership with their communities and the NSW Government along a pathway to shared prosperity in four areas as follows: become familiar with the network and understand some of the steps to participate fully in a new approach to make changes for their community gain and involvement by community members and get people talking about practical ways to bringing about change in programs and services that are delivered in the community.
Aboriginal Community and Cultural Vitality
We will know we are experiencing shared prosperity when our People feel strong and active, belonging together with attitudes and interests, giving continuance to our Aboriginal Culture and our community values .Aboriginal community and cultural vitality are the heart of our People’s wellbeing and essential to all domains that follow.
The Rationale
Without community and cultural vitality, we cannot build knowledge through learning pathways. Without community and cultural vitality, we cannot build a modern and dynamic Aboriginal workforce. Without community and cultural vitality, we cannot equalise economic opportunities.

To embark on a future of shared prosperity we require support for cultural restoration and practices, voice in action and community cohesiveness.

We seek to work together towards shared prosperity by enabling and creating community-controlled initiatives, co-designing solutions, and adopting family centred approaches.
