A national issue, particularly among Aboriginal and migrant communities. The issue of ID points for opening accounts with financial instituions, registering for sporting club membership, obtaining a driver’s license, applying for a passport can be a major hurdle for families who have not registered their child at birth or who have never applied to have a birth certificate issued.

A community partnered initiative to redress the issue locally through the Minimbah School.

The project nearing completion after 2 years – SVM documenting the final 6 months with works and community engagement in Walcha Uralla Armidale & Guyra in Northern NSW.

The project focuses on rehabilitating rural urban environments – parks, waterways and remnant bushland.
