Inner Sydney Empowered Communities Limited (ISEC) is one of nine regions leading the Empowered Communities reforms around Australia.

The ISEC Board is made up of equal representation from our two local alliance groups, The La Perouse Aboriginal Alliance and The Redfern Empowered Communities Alliance.

This means community priorities are identified at the local level and are taken to the ISEC Board for endorsement.

The ISEC Secretariat supports the ISEC Board and the two local alliance groups. The ISEC Secretariat is neutral convener connecting Aboriginal, government and corporate partners to deliver the regional development agenda.


Slide OUR VISION OUR PEOPLE WALK WITHIN TWO WORLDS. OUR VISION IS FOR OUR PEOPLE TO CONFIDENTLY NAVIGATE THE PATHWAY OF SUCCESS AND EMPOWERMENT WITH FLUENCY, STRENGTH, AND SUPPORT FROM OUR COMMUNITY. Slide LOGO
FROM THIS VISION, WE HAVE
EIGHT SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES.
OBJECTIVE Our young people’s
aspirations are supported.
Parents are supported to be involved in their kids’ education and maintain routines for kids to go to school every day. Schools are welcoming places that provide a high-quality education. We have a safe, capable and supportive community where our culture is practised and maintained through dancing, singing, language and sharing of knowledge and kinship. Capable adults participate in either training or work. Housing is affordable and safe, and individuals respect and care for their property and people are supported to achieve home ownership. There is a respectful relationship
between our community and the law.
Elders are supported and cared for by our community. People in our community are healthy
and have access to quality health care.

Empowered Peoples Design Report

This report is the culmination of 18 months of engagement and design work by Indigenous leaders, communities and organisations across the eight Empowered Communities regions.
In it, we propose a range of reforms that build on decades of effort by Indigenous peoples to reclaim control in driving our own priorities for development.
