About

RISE-Ngurrajuta Pty Limited is a joint venture powered locally in the South West Alice, North and South Region by Ngurratjuta/Pmara Ntjarra Aboriginal Corporation and RISE Ventures.

Established in 2018, we service the needs of many communities from Mutitjulu (surrounding Uluru), Kaltukatjara – Docker River (WA Border), Imanpa (SW of Alice Springs), Tennant Creek and Elliott through the Community Development Programme.

This partnership was forged out of opportunity rather than necessity, emphasising the sophistication and character of both organisations and their goals to bring quality services and better outcomes to the local people and communities in regional and remote Australia.

At RISE we deliver the Federal Government’s Community Development Programme (CDP) in two remote communities in Queensland and one in the Northern Territory. We provide the CDP participants with skills and opportunities for training, employment and we nurture small business enterprises.

Partners

Ngurratjuta/Pmara Ntjarra Aboriginal Corporation was incorporated in August 1985. It is an Association of all those Communities deemed to have been “affected” by the oil and gas mining operations at Mereenie and Palm Valley and provided a body with strong governance and vision for the region.

Ngurratjuta’s original purpose was to provide financially independent Aboriginal Communities with Inter-Community Corporations and utilise royalty funds to build an active investment. It provided a growing income base for the Member Communities and stimulated job opportunities and venture activities for members, while actively supporting Community development activities and infrastructure improvements in member Communities.

RISE Ventures, part of the Angus Knight group of companies, focuses on human services and is an innovative community partner. Identifying opportunity and common values with local partners RISE is dedicated to supporting the advancement of economic development and small business incubation and building the capability of local Aboriginal organisations.
