Our Mission / Objective

Vision, Mission & Values

Vision

Sustainable Aboriginal Nations

Mission

To work with Aboriginal Nations to deliver services to realise their aspirations

Across our work, we uphold the following values:

•Respect – for people, culture, country, difference and ideas

•Professionalism – being ethical, accountable and transparent, and working with integrity and competence

•Inclusive- encouraging collaboration, participation, and listening to and considering the views of others

Our Services

SANTS offers the following range of professional services to support
Aboriginal Nations manage and protect native title and identify and
pursue opportunities for social, cultural and economic development.

Corporate Governance

Governance of PBCs is complicated with unique requirements under
the Corporations (Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (Cth) and
the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth). These services support Aboriginal
Nations to understand the governance framework and develop
internal tools and practices to govern effectively. Services include:
• Corporate governance training.
• Corporate policy development.
• Corporate leadership and strategy development.
• Advice on legislative requirements including reporting,
decision-making and rule-book.

Corporate Administration

The level of resources PBCs varies, and some are not able to
meet the administrative needs of the corporation. SANTS offers
administrative services to Aboriginal Nations including:
• Executive management services such as:
– meeting coordination
– preparation meeting papers
– Board and community communications
– records management
– compliance (e.g., ORIC reporting, membership registers)
– general administration
• Financial management including accounts payable,
book-keeping and accounting.
• Human Resource management including recruitment,
contracts and policy/compliance.

Community Development

Native title can provide a foundation to support and drive
positive change. SANTS offers services to provide support to
Aboriginal Nations to identify and develop community-based
initiatives which include:
• Corporate and community planning and implementation.
• Grant writing.
• Marketing and communications.
• Project development, coordination and management
(including in cultural heritage and natural
resource management).
• Partnering, networking and stakeholder relations.
• Organisational development.
• Economic and enterprise development.
• Benefit management.

Native Title Services

Managing native title requires that
Aboriginal Nations continue to negotiate
with other parties, make decisions in
particular ways and satisfy existing agreement
obligations and other legislative requirements.
SANTS offers services to Aboriginal Nations on native
title matters which include:
• Legal advice and representation.
• Legal education/training on native title matters.
• Negotiations, agreement making and agreement
implementation.
• Filing and prosecution of compensation claims.
• Making native title decisions.
• Structuring and establishing native title and related
entities including PBCs, trusts and business arms.

Our Beneficiaries

In South Australia, native title has been successfully determined
over large parts of the State and native title corporations or
Prescribed Body Corporates (PBCs) now hold and manage the
determined native title rights and interests.

Thus for many Aboriginal Nations, the native title journey has
shifted from the struggle to get native title to living with native
title. SANTS expects that this trend will continue.

Obtaining recognition of native title presents new and exciting
opportunities, but also presents challenges.

We take a developmental approach to our services, and seek to
partner with respective PBCs and tailor our services and approach
to meet their interests. Our overarching objective is for Aboriginal
Nations to be sustainable, and manage their rights and interests
and achieve their aspirations on their terms.
