Why it Matters
Unemployment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in Cape York and Cairns is still unacceptably high.
Without work, people can often find themselves in the crippling grip of passive welfare and low self-worth. This can lead to damaging social and health problems for themselves, their families and communities.
Meaningful employment can help break this cycle.
Bama Services provides genuine opportunities to access the real economy. We empower people to take control of –and responsibility for – their own professional and personal development.
What we are Doing
Bama Services has formed strong partnerships with all levels of government, as well as private and not-for-profit organisations. Over the past 10 years of operations, Bama Services has undergone substantial growth and increased capability across its four operating divisions.
Underpinning this growth is a robust business plan, a highly experienced Executive Team, a real focus on delivering service excellence and the empowerment of our people.
Bama has employed more than 260 staff, upskilled 80+ staff with tertiary qualifications and strives for an Indigenous employment rate of 75%.
Support and Wellbeing
Bama Services builds people.
Our award-winning Support & Wellbeing Program helps employees navigate personal, social and economic challenges, so they can reach their professional potential and achieve a fulfilling personal life.
An individual case management approach provides staff with access to an extensive range of support services, while weekly workshop sessions promote teamwork, mateship and personal development.
This program has proven key to the retention and success of staff.
