It is recognised that indigenous people in Australia are in a unique situation of disadvantage due to a number of socioeconomic factors.

A Banjima Benefits Management Structure (BMS) has been created to hold and manage benefits for the Banjima People. Through the BMS a number of policies have been developed to assist with BNTAC’s Strategic Priorities and Vision of ensuring the Banjima People are healthy, secure and independent through the development of strong and healthy families, strong connection to culture and country and that Banjima people have the capacity to develop and maintain economic independence.
