TLaWC protects the cultural heritage of Taungurung people by performing the functions of a Registered Aboriginal Party (RAP) under the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006.
We develop projects for the economic, social and cultural well-being of Taungurung people. We provide opportunities for engagement in cultural events by facilitating camps, activities, and educational workshops for Taungurung people and minimise the barriers to participation.
In addition to this, TLaWC also provides services for natural resource management. We liaise with governmental bodies, private land owners, developers, and other stakeholders to assist with applying protocol for best land and water management practices to ensure environmental and cultural heritage preservation.
We develop educational resources for use in schools, libraries, and community groups to promote and raise cultural awareness in our communities.
We keep our members informed and connected. Through our online social media presence and dissemination of monthly newsletters we enable TLaWC members and the wider community to be aware of the latest news, cultural events, health services, job and educational opportunities, as well as other potential pathways for social and economic well-being.
