Summary Information:
The Moama Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) formalises a number of community initiatives that promote family safety. The SRA was made between the Indigenous community in Moama and the Commonwealth Government.

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 Moama SRA was signed to improve family safety. Under the SRA, a number of activities are formalised to promote stronger relationships and promote responsible behaviour. These activities include barbeques and sports days, and a family violence action plan.

Shared Responsibilities

The Commonwealth Government will provide $40,000 to 'assist in the development of the action plan and provide funding to employ a families liaison officer.

Families and individuals will participate in these activities and support services for families or individuals in crisis.

The community will be involved in directing the efforts of the families liaison officer and in organising related activities.' (SRA Fact Sheet).

The Moama SRA is administered by the Wagga Wagga Indigenous Coordination Centre.
