Kirrip Aboriginal Corporation provides services to the local Aboriginal communities in and around Melton and surrounding areas. At Kirrip we respectfully acknowledge the traditional owners of the Aboriginal land on which we gather. Through our community at Kirrip we will continue to build a respectful and honest place for our community to gather, and continue the work of those that came before us, our ancestors and Elders, to create a better future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
Kirrip Aboriginal Corporation aims to be recognised as a vital link in the West Metropolitan Aboriginal community, with a well-established presence in the City of Melton and surrounding area. Our priorities are underpinned by our determination to establish Kirrip as a financially viable and sustainable community controlled organisation.
Kirrip aims to provide opportunities for the Aboriginal Community to participate in cultural and social activities which promote social and emotional wellbeing. Kirrip’s programs engage Aboriginal Elders, men, women, youth, children and families.
Kirrip provides services in a culturally safe and appropriate environment and continues to reflect and affirm Aboriginal cultural qualities in all programs.
