The Aboriginal Support Group - Manly Warringah Pittwater (ASG) started in 1979 as a treaty organisation and later developed into a group of people committed to supporting Indigenous Australians in their broader struggle for justice. Located on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, members of the ASG share a passion to see right relationships forged between Indigenous and settler Australians. Working in our local area, we seek to change the way non-Aboriginal people understand and relate to Aboriginal Australians. We never speak on behalf of Aboriginal people and are committed to 'be there' for Aboriginal people with effective, informed support. The ASG meets regularly to discuss issues, causes and events, to plan actions, to share friendship and experiences. Work is shared by trusted volunteers.
The membership fee is AU$25 per year (GST included). This covers operating expenses and helps with the cost of producing Elimatta. It also enables us to contribute to Aboriginal projects and programs.
Members are encouraged to attend as many meetings as possible and to keep in touch by email and telephone. The group attempts to keep members informed about special meetings, events and actions that need to be taken. This website is updated regularly with such information.
