Bourke Tribal Council 2020-04-24T21:03:06+10:00

Local leadership and decision making

The aim of the Bourke Tribal Council is to bring together all the interests and strengths of all the different Tribes and families that make up the community of Bourke, and who proudly call Bourke their home. By bringing all the Tribes and families into alliance, we aim to lead real and lasting generational change that will meet the contemporary needs for all families and individuals of Bourke.

The Bourke Tribal Council’s work will provide fundamental support to Maranguka, to ensure that Maranguka truly represents the diverse clans and families that make up our Bourke community.

The key purpose of the Bourke Tribal Council is to gather evidence of what the Bourke community wants and needs. The Bourke Tribal Council will work together to identify and provide real time information that relates to the service gaps, challenges, needs, strengths and weaknesses of the families and individuals that call Bourke their home.

This critical information will drive Maranguka to develop meaningful partnerships with service providers that are based on real evidence of the Bourke community’s needs, as identified by our community members.
