Ballarat and District Aboriginal Co-operative Limited

The Ballarat and District Aboriginal Co-operative (BADAC) was established by members of the Ballarat and District Aboriginal community in 1979. BADAC delivers health, social, welfare and community development programs to local Aboriginal people.

BADAC is the Aboriginal Community-Controlled Organisation (ACCO) for the Ballarat and district area, covering 4 local government areas (LGAs). BADAC is focused on prevention and early intervention, always with a client-centred approach, to ensure that our clients are personally engaging in the development and nurturing of their own futures.
