Aboriginal Resource & Management Support Unit

1800 679 199

We work with Aboriginal children's services in South Australia. Together, we want to see Aboriginal children grow strong and healthy in their families, their communities and their culture. We work with Directors, staff, management committee members, Community Council members, parents and Community representatives.

Support may be provided directly through our agency or accessed from other organisations or individuals.
We cover:

  • Running a quality program for children and planning to meet needs of children, families and communities
  • Managing staff, finances, OHS&W, resources and administration
  • Supporting management committees to practice good governance
  • General operational support
  • Referrals; building networks and links

1800 phone line

Call us free anytime on 1800 679 199. We have an answering machine for after hours calls, or when staff are otherwise engaged.

Visits to services

We will visit your service (city or country) at your request, to give support, advice, training and information. If you would like a visit to your centre to discuss an issue or just to find out more about what we do, call us on 1800 679 199. We can come to your service any where in South Australia at a time to suit you.

Aboriginal Services Meetings

Three times each year we hold 2-day meetings for Directors, Coordinators, Management Committee Members and staff of Aboriginal Child Care, Out of School Hours Care and Cr�che Services. These meetings usually include guest speaker/s, training / professional development sessions, displays of resources and time to network and share ideas, concerns and experiences. At each meeting decisions about future meeting dates, speakers and training sessions can be made together as a group. Aboriginal Services Meetings are interesting, informative and fun.


We can provide training on most aspects of running a child care service and also support services to access culturally aware training from other agencies and organisations.
