Programs  CDO Shepparton 

CDO officer works on building partnerships within the local community with organisations that have an Aboriginal focus

Some of these partnerships/programs are:

  • Lullas Children and Family Services
  • Bangerang Cultural Centre
  • Black Eagles Basketball Club
  • Cummeragunga Football and Netball Club
  • Goulburn Valley Local Aboriginal Education Consultative Group
  • Footprints In Time
  • Greater Shepparton Suicide Prevention Network
  • Shepparton Local Aboriginal Network

We also assist with finding and applying for funding for groups and clubs who have a strong focus on Aboriginal participation. These funding grants have enabled many groups to participate in many events. For example:

  • Black Eagles Basketball Club to attend tournaments and participate in the local domestic basketball association
  • Bangerang Cultural Centre to hold a weekly Men’s Cultural and Well Being Group with a focus on family violence and Men’s Health
  • Cummeragunja Women’s Football Team to participate in the Inaugural Aboriginal Women’s AFL Carnival. This carnival was held in November 2017 and games played at the Richmond Football Club.
  • Cummeragunja Local Aboriginal Land Council: assisted in submitting funding and grants to upgrade the community hall and historic school building. These buildings are important to many Aboriginal people in Victoria especially those who have a cultural connection to the area. The school is currently being developed to include a garden where community members can use for reflection and remembrance particularly after sorry business.

Our goals for the community are to find funding for the following activities

  • Youth Resilience Camps
  • Aboriginal Women’s AFL Carnival
  • Womens and Mens Cultural Programs
