The program will also boost confidence levels of the Landcare groups by providing support and information in relation to contacting the right people being Traditional owners and or Registered Aboriginal Parties (RAP) organisation as well as providing ongoing support and education to local communities to enhance engagement between Landcare and the Aboriginal Community .
The Statewide Aboriginal Landcare Facilitator Program will also continually develop and enhance the Cultural Awareness Training program and implement this training around the State engaging community groups and networks to strengthen partnerships with traditional owners.
