Job Ready Programs
CatholicCare NT – Community Development Program
The Community Development Program (CDP) is a remote employment and community development service. It helps eligible job seekers to build skills, find work and stay employed.
Who we help
This program helps Aboriginal community members from communities across South East Alice Springs.
How we help
We work with job seekers, families and communities to help job seekers gain and maintain employment. We provide training and education to help participants find local employment. We help to address barriers to work including language, literacy and numeracy skills, substance abuse and health issues. CatholicCare NT partners with Atyenhenge-Atherre Aboriginal Corporation in delivering this service.
Saltbush Social Enterprises
Saltbush Social Enterprises (Saltbush) is a not-for-profit organisation that was developed in response to the critical need for opportunities that create prosperity parity for marginalised
Australians in the Northern Territory (NT).
We put Indigenous people at the centre of our organisation because we know we cannot achieve employment parity until all people have equal employment opportunities. Our motto is a person with a job is a person with a future. We strive to break down barriers that others do not experience by taking a ‘boots on the ground’ approach.
All programs and activities we deliver including Supported Bail Accommodation, Saltbush Employment Services, the Saltbush Wellbeing Program, and Accelerated Aboriginal Chefs of Excellence (AACE) have an underlining focus on helping participants with employment opportunities.
Our strength is our unique mentoring product where our focus is to specialise in empowering Indigenous and other marginalised Territorian jobseekers to develop life skills and basic employability skills moving them along the continuum and then connect them to education and employment for a rewarding, meaningful, and sustainable working life.
