Objects of REDWatch Incorporated

The REDWatch Charter was updated when REDWatch was incorporated. The Objects and Proposed Activites below are taken from the REDWatch Rules of Association and spell out the basis for REDWatch's operation.



REDwatch is a group of community residents and friends from Redfern, Waterloo, Eveleigh and Darlington who support the existing diversity in these areas and wish to promote sustainable, responsible economic and social development.

REDwatch recognises the importance of the Aboriginal community to the area.

REDWatch has been formed to:

  1. Monitor the activities of the Government (local, state and federal), the Redfern Waterloo Authority, and any other government instrumentality with responsibility for the Redfern, Waterloo, Darlington and Eveleigh area, to ensure that:

(a)     The strategy benefits a diverse community

(b)     Communication and consultation is comprehensive and responsive

(c)     Pressure is maintained on authorities

  1. Provide a mechanism for discussion and action on community issues.
  2. Enhance communication between community groups and encourage broad community participation.


This may involve:

  • Holding regular meetings;
  • Holding community forums and other events;
  • Establishing a website;
  • Communicating with the community through other means;
  • Meeting with government representatives and authorities;
  • Cooperating with other community organisations;
  • And any other means the association deems appropriate.
