Summary Information:
The Kalumburu Community have signed two Shared Responsibility Agreements (SRAs) with the Commonwealth Government to improve children's health and local governance structures. The Kalumburu 'Breakfast Program' SRA provides a structured 'breakfast club' for school children to improve nutrition in the community.

Shared Responsibility Agreements are agreements between governments and Indigenous communities to provide discretionary funding in return for community obligations. The new arrangements developed from an initiative of the Council of Australian Governments and replace the previous ATSIC system of funding. For more information see 'Shared Responsibility Agreement' below.
Detailed Information:

The 'Breakfast Program' is designed to improve the nutrition of Kalumburu's 150 school children. Each day, children will receive breakfast and a recess snack to help them concentrate at school.

Shared Responsibilities

The Kalumburu Community will contribute to the SRA by makins sure children attend both the breakfast club and school. Parents will contribute to the costs of the food and run the club on a roster system.

Under the SRA, the Commonwealth Government will provide $10,000 towards equipment and will set up a direct debit scheme.

The Kalumburu School is also involved in the SRA. The School home economics room will be used for the program, and the school will monitor attendance levels.

The Kalumburu SRAs are administered by the Kununurra Indigenous Coordination Centre.
