Community Development Program
Benefits for you and your Mob
Real Futures has deep and rich ties to local Mob wherever we are. We work with individuals, communities and local employers to create job pathways and identify potential self-employment opportunities.
We build skills at the grassroots
Real Futures operates the Australian Government’s Community Development Program (CDP) in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia, with site locations in Carnarvon, Exmouth, Burringarrah and Gascoyne Junction.
The program aims to build hands-on vocational skills that provide employment opportunities for people receiving income support payments in remote areas of Australia.
It is designed to meet the unique needs of remote communities, where finding a job is very different from finding a job in a major city or regional area.
Since its introduction, the CDP has supported thousands of participants into jobs.
How to access CDP support
Generally, you are eligible to receive CDP services if you live in remote Australia, and you are receiving income support payments and looking for a job. People not on income support can volunteer to participate in the CDP.
