- ……………………………………………….. a few words from William.
A respected Central Australian Aboriginal leader says good and effective programs developed by his people have ultimately come to an end because the shortness of Governments and the uncertainty of funding ….ultimately kills them off.
William Tilmouth.. Chairman of the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress says too often Governments fail to give Aboriginal programs longevity, time and the opportunity to prove themselves.
Mr Tilmouth says while it was a good thing that Territory Senator Nigel Scullion had retained the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander portfolio… as this would provide some continuity…. he had few kind words for the bureaucrats that ultimately control the implementation of programs.

The Hall Creek’s Aboriginal Advisory Committee . which is made up of Aboriginal people from across the Shire … representatives from the major communities in the area … and town residents who recently voted to reject a proposed trial of a health welfare card … which limits the amount of cash available to welfare recipients.
Kim Bridge …chair of the Aboriginal advisory committee told CAAMA Radio the cashless welfare card reflects a top down approach which unnecessarily targets all Aboriginal welfare recipients.
Malcolm Edwards …President of the Halls Creek Shire says there was little consultation with the Halls Creek community about the trial and he believes it will have a negative impact on the local community.
