Employment & Enterprise Plan

One of the main areas of RWA activity was to be the creation of employment opportunities for those that live within the RWA boundaries. While increasing the number of people who work within the RWA area is a prime objective special action needed to be undertaken to ensure that those who live within the RWA area also benefit from these opportunities. The RWA produced a Redfern-Waterloo Employment and Enterprise Plan in 2006. RWA Employment activity concentrated primarily on Aboriginal employment. With the absorption of the RWA the Aboriginal Employment and Enterprise Activities were transferred to the Australian Technology Park. Information from 2011 about these programmes can be found on the ATP website. Employment programmes aimed at the broader public housing community never eventuated within the RWA.
