Community Development Program

The Community Development Program (CDP) supports unemployed people to build skills, address barriers preventing employment and contribute to their communities through a range of flexible activities.

It is designed around the unique social and labour market conditions in remote Australia and is part of the Australian Government’s agenda for increasing employment and breaking the cycle of welfare dependency.

EKJP CDP participants are supported by our team of Case Managers and Post Placement Support Officers while learning valuable skills and participating in formal training through attending activities.

WAYFINDER DISABILITY SERVICES

EKJP Disability Services provides strategic programs and supports throughout the East Kimberley that align to the needs of people living with a disability, their families and care networks. Through this service, we deliver our registered NDIS service Wayfinder and the All Abilities Sport and Recreation Program. EKJP Disability Services strives to align with the needs of our community and the people that live here, if there is a support or service needed in the East Kimberley to meet the needs of people living with a disability, please get in touch.

Revive is the Waste and Recycling hub of EKJP. The store was established in 2017, since then our recycling efforts in the East Kimberley have expanded from one tip shop located in Kununurra to delivering the Container for Change scheme across the East Kimberley and Halls Creek/Tjurablan Regions.

By partnering with Containers for Change, we aim to encourage people to recycle more and help to build more pride in the beautiful Kimberley landscapes.

The Revive Tip Shop offers a wide range of recycling programs and upcycling of items that would otherwise be taken to the tip as waste.

ABOUT US

East Kimberley Job Pathways is a not-for-profit community development company owned in partnership by two well respected Aboriginal organisations – Wunan Foundation and KREAC.

Our organisation was established in 2013 to deliver the Federal Government’s Community Development Program across the broader East Kimberley and Halls Creek/Tjurabalan Regions.

In 2017 we established Revive in Kununurra to provide valued service to the community while creating meaningful employment opportunities for long-term unemployed people.

2020 saw significant changes to EKJP with the creation of our Disability Services – Wayfinder, and the launch of the Container Deposit Scheme across East Kimberley and Halls Creek/Tjurabalan Regions.
