    Summary Information:
    The Brewarrina 'Community Parks' Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) was signed between the Brewarrina Aboriginal Community and the Commonwealth government to provide two parks for healthy family activities in the isolated town. This SRA was signed at the same time as the Brewarrina 'Community Bus' SRA. The Brewarrina community was also a signatory to two other SRAs, addressing school attendance issues and homemaker skills for women, as part of the Murdi Paaki COAG trial.

    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 Brewarrina 'Community Parks' Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) will provide the Brewarrina community with venues for family/community outings. The SRA provides for two parks, one at Barwon Four and the other at Brewarrina West. Both parks will have seating, barbeques and shaded areas.

    Shared Responsibilities

    Community members, either as volunteers or CDEP workers, will build and maintain the parks, remove litter and work to prevent vandalism. Community members will also hold community activities in the parks.

    The Commonwealth Government will provide funds for the upgrade of the parks, including the installation of irrigation.
