Over a decade of improving Indigenous health
If the store is commercially self-sufficient, the store owners work with the store committee to decide how to spend the profits for the benefit of the community. If the store is not commercially self-sufficient Outback Stores support the store financially to ensure there is food security.
The first official Outback Stores’ managed store opened at Canteen Creek in May 2007, although relief managers had begun providing retail services to Imanpa in November 2006 and Ringer Soak (Kundat Djaru) in March 2007.
10 years on Outback Stores continues to make a positive difference to the health, employment and economy of remote Indigenous communities that we work with.
