    Summary Information:
    The Derby 'Derby Backstreets Clean Up Project' Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) was agreed between the Australian Government (through the Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs) and the Derby Indigenous Community on 27 April 2007. The SRA aims to fund two community clean up events in April and June 2007.

    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.

    Shared Responsibilities
    The community, in particular the women, will undertake the organising and labour involved in this clean up; will engage with other community service providers; and will promote ongoing community activities of this nature. Families and individuals will ensure that their school aged children are attending school.

The community have also agreed to take before and after photographs of the participants and contribute to a short qualitative report about the project.
