Indigenous Peoples Plans

Creating better engagement with indigenous communities and staff. Creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace.

Many Indigenous Australians have policies, infrastructure and programs imposed on them that create a dependant rather than self determined life journey. The implementation of such policies is often done with complete disregard as to the effect on the relevant Aboriginal community and people.

“Economic Life …depends on moral bonds of social trust. This is the unspoken, unwritten bond between fellow citizens that facilitates transactions, empowers individual creativity, and justifies collective action… the social capital represented by trust is as important as physical capital ”


Organisations or individuals often enter communities believing because they have good intentions or a valuable project they will be well received but they are unaware they need to engage with the broader community to achieve their objectives. In other alternate circumstances organisations and or individuals are aware that meaningful engagement is required but just don’t know how to or where to start and some just don’t care.

Yum Yum & Delicious undertakes a briefing session with the client to ascertain the Context, Purpose, Quality, Quantity, Resources and Time (CPQQRT) of the task at hand. This opens the discussion and encourages clarifying questions. Yum Yum & Delicious then utilises the process of developing an Indigenous Peoples Plan. This is a template used to capture information about the existing community, the current infrastructure and services, community strengths and its leaders to develop a communication and engagement strategy to ensure the community and the visiting organisation are able to create local content opportunities for the project thereby facilitating the community’s meaningful inclusion and acceptance.

“Recently we have been able to utilise Cara and Adele from Yum Yum & Delicious in a sub contractor capacity. We found them to be knowledgeable and professional in delivering projects at the high standard we expect for our valuable clients”

Chantal Harris -The Cultural Connection Code

Yum Yum & Delicious take a holistic approach to community engagement starting with baseline data and an understanding of the current community climate assessing the context into which we are entering. We then layer information gathered from desktop research and real time conversations to inform us throughout the process. This is enabled through the Yum Yum & Delicious’ streamlined stakeholder management processes to deliver well planned and executed outcomes from within engaged community and stakeholder groups. In doing so Yum Yum & Delicious ensure no stone is left unturned on the path to inclusion and real outcomes for indigenous people and the organisations that work with them.
