Commissioning opportunities

AbSec is commissioning initiatives for better outcomes for Aboriginal children, young people and their families to ensure that services – and the implementation of services – are community-led.

Through Commissioning, we are partnering with funding bodies to invest in community co-designed service solutions and initiatives that are tailored to the Aboriginal people’s aspirations and needs.

AbSec is committed to building a stronger Aboriginal-controlled child, family and community services sector that is viable and delivers better outcomes for Aboriginal children, young people and their families. For information on our commissioning process, please see the AbSec Guide to Contracting Services.
