Peedac Pty Ltd

Our vision is of a strong Indigenous community where our people can participate in mainstream economic activities through employment or business ownership and can develop and manage community based projects to solve local problems.  We see this as a means for achieving economic self-sufficiency and well being for our people.

Values

Our operations are underpinned by the values of:

  • Respect for the rights and privacy of our Staff and clients;
  • Respect for Indigenous culture and a recognition of diversity within the Indigenous community in our area of operations;
  • Responsibility to make decisions in a fair, equitable, consistent and transparent manner without bias;
  • to be a “best practice” organisation, to achieve this through a commitment to continuous improvement

We provide support and assistance to Aboriginal people to become economically empowered while recognising and retaining their cultural strength and identity.

 

PEEDAC is best at:

  1. Providing connections with business and industry promoting Aboriginal people as an integral part of a skilled workforce.
  2. Providing a welcoming environment and accessing connections within the community to provide assistance and support
  3. Developing enterprises which not only employ Aboriginal people but which also improve the economic base of the organisation

 

 

 

 

Our uniqueness is our connection with the Aboriginal community and our strong focus on economic empowerment for Aboriginal people.

Our Logo

The circular shape is unique in Aboriginal art or storytelling as a symbol depicting various objects of significance in transferring meaning or knowledge.

The curved lines and dots symbolise Peedac’s connection with Aboriginal groups, industries and businesses. The inward arrows point to the hub within the logo representing the administration that are united by a two-way flow of information. The lines between each area represent non-Aboriginal people and businesses working with Peedac as part of the national reconciliation process.
