It is recognised that indigenous people in Australia are in a unique situation of disadvantage due to a number of socioeconomic factors.
To help support our community, a Banjima Benefits Management Structure (BMS) has been created to hold and manage benefits from royalty payments by proponents, for the Banjima People.
These royalties are compensation for proponent (mining) activity and profits made from Banjima Country that impacts culture and heritage.
Through the BMS, a number of policies have been developed by Banjima representative and the Trustee to assist with BNTAC’s Strategic Priorities and Vision.
These include ensuring the Banjima People are healthy, secure and independent through the development of strong and healthy families, and strong connection to culture and Country. This also helps our focus of ensuring Banjima People have the capacity to develop and maintain economic independence.
