Two inland Pilbara community service organisations have formalised their decades-long working relationship with the signing of a strategic partnership.

Tom Price’s Nintirri Centre and the Karingal Neighbourhood Centre in Paraburdoo agreed to a strategic alliance partnership earlier this month, in an agreement setting out how they can improve and expand community services available to people in the communities of Tom Price, Paraburdoo, Wakathuni, Bellary Springs and Youngaleena.

Signings took place in Paraburdoo and Tom Price before a celebratory dinner was held with key stakeholders. Both community service organisations began operating in the 1980s and do similar work in their respective communities, but the document marks the first time they have formalised a working partnership.

The agreement covers areas including early years care and education, health and wellbeing, business growth and arts and tourism development, and has already led to a family violence service and fly-in, fly-out midwife visiting both towns each month.
