Evidence Base

BBY is committed to supporting Aboriginal-led development and policy reform through building a well-researched and meaningful evidence base. We recognise that one of the most important uses of data and evidence in our work is giving Aboriginal people the power to tell our own story and advocate for change.

Through collecting data and evidence at community and government levels, BBY is creating a strong evidence base for BBY Board Directors, Members and key partners to draw upon.  This evidence base allows individuals and families to be informed of what is happening in our communities, provides a platform to build regional priorities for the Regional Development Agenda, and supports Aboriginal-led joint decision-making with Governments.
