Operating since 2006, Koya Aboriginal Corporation (Koya) is a 100% Aboriginal owned not-for-profit organisation. Guided and led by Aboriginal people and with a focus on engaging and retaining Aboriginal staff. The organisation’s mission is to gather Aboriginal grassroots knowledge and community-lived experiences about what builds individual, kin and community strength, so that Aboriginal and vulnerable children and young people may grow, succeed and thrive in their chosen life journey.
Koya is an inclusive community group that welcomes other vulnerable children and families and we use our Kinship Care model to connect communities to each other. Underpinning Koya’s delivery of services and programs is the Pindi Pindi Centre for Research Excellence in Aboriginal Wellbeing which, through research and evaluation based on the principles of sustainability, empowerment and cultural security, provides evidence to inform program development, implementation and delivery.
Here are some of our community programs:

The untimely death of an Aboriginal young person in 2016 highlighted community concern for stronger engagement with youth, demonstrated by the high rate of youth antisocial behaviour occurring in the community.
Koya has operated in the Swan region since 2006 and in Kwinana region from 2017 and has served all members of that community, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, in a variety of different ways.
