Governance and Funding
The practices of Tjillari Justice are informed by a Board of Independent Professional Advisers. Board members can change in order to access the most appropriate expertise for each project. The organisation reports annually to the Australian Government’s Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations (ORIC).
We have adopted a social enterprise model where every project undertaken must create employment for an Aboriginal person.
Tjillari is self-funded and raises revenue by designing, developing and delivering workshops, training; and programs for both the public and private sector.
The organisation has Deductible Gift Recipient Status (DGR) and has also received a number of grants over the years as well as been recognised through awards including:
- Inclusion on the ACT Women’s Honour Roll
- Recognition as a Service Provider for Women (International Women’s Day 2020)
- The Intergenerational Award category of the Positive Ageing Awards, part of the Council on the Ageing (COTA) ACT Seniors Week celebrations
- 2019 ACT NAIDOC Week Award
- 2016 Woman of Spirit Award - Lifeline Canberra’s annual awards which recognise and celebrate outstanding women in the community who have overcome adversity, given back to the community and inspired others to do the same.
