Yarpa: We will walk with you

The NSW Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) has partnered with the
Australian Government, under the Indigenous Business Sector
Strategy (IBSS), to design and deliver the NSW Indigenous Business
and Employment Hub (the Yarpa Hub).

The Yarpa Hub is a one-stop-shop for Indigenous businesses,
entrepreneurs and job seekers to build relationships and connect
Indigenous people to business and employment opportunities.

Employers wishing to hire Indigenous Australians or engage
Indigenous businesses in their supply chain will also be assisted
to access the most appropriate service or advice. NSWALC will
deliver the Hub in close collaboration with the Australian and NSW
Governments to ensure Indigenous businesses and job seekers can get
the support they need quickly and easily.
