Partner with Cape York Partnerships
”Like many of the challenges we face as a nation, government cannot close the gap alone. Everyone – the corporate world, the non-government sector, Indigenous communities – has a part to play“. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in a speech to the Business Council of Australia 25th Anniversary dinner, 30 October 2008
Cape York Partnerships leads and enables reform by building innovative partnerships between Indigenous individuals and families, government and the philanthropic and corporate sectors. Partners are critical to achieving our vision and bring vital skills and knowledge to the organisation. They allow us to obtain goods or services — via either pro bono or subsidised rates — that we, as a not-for-profit organisation would not otherwise have access to.
Benefits of Partnering With Us
Our organisation is maturing, our vision is gaining clarity and we are gaining momentum. With our welfare reform agenda we are planning for substantial growth and improved capacity.
Our diverse projects offer many varied opportunities for partners to make a difference.
Partnering with us offers immediate and long lasting benefits to our communities. Besides providing an opportunity for corporations and others to "give back to the community" through corporate responsibility frameworks, our partners have seen significant benefits like the personal and professional development of their staff, who come away from what is often a very challenging role with a new appreciation of the need to "think outside the box".
Providing Secondees for Projects
Various partners continue to provide secondees from among their experienced staff who work on specific projects and help with the continuous improvement of Cape York Partnerships's project delivery.
All Cape York Partnerships secondees (and fellows) agree upon their placement to deliverables that directly link to our priorities. These deliverables are monitored during the placement and evaluated by the secondee and the reporting manager at the end of the secondment. This ensures every secondee can be directly linked to the achievement of our goals.
Secondees are invaluable to Cape York Partnerships, and provide a human resource focussed on business excellence.
