    Waltja Tjutangku Palyapayi Aboriginal Corporation – Aged Disability

    We work to help elders stay safe and strong by offering disability support and enabling access to visit country (home). We look out for opportunities to support elders, helping people to stay at home on communities, providing warm blankets and clothing in the winter. The public has supported our annual blanket appeal generously.

    Frail aged people on communities can become ill quickly during the bitterly cold desert winters, and sadly some pass away early because of neglect. We seek out those who may have fallen between the cracks and offer our support. It is vital that we renew the supply of blankets each year because of the harsh conditions.
