The Shire of Wiluna covers an area of 184,000 square kilometres of predominantly mining and pastoral land. It lies on the western edge of the Western Desert, which also extends across the Northern Territory and South Australia. This report identifies the strengths, issues and gaps in services impacting on Indigenous people in the Shire. It presents statistical data and a detailed analysis of issues in the areas of health, community services, housing, justice, education, economic development, land and heritage. There are also chapters on coordination of service delivery, and engagement with the Indigenous community, and the report makes 86 recommendations to improve outcomes for Indigenous people in the region. Appendices are published separately - see Publications index, http://www.dia.wa.gov.au/Publications/.
