ABOUT

Ochre and Salt provides human service consultancy and capacity-building programs to improve systems, relationships and wellbeing.

Ochre and Salt is a Supply Nation registered Indigenous business. We work extensively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities on a range of priorities set by them. But this isn’t where our work ends. Walking two worlds, we provide management consultancy in a broad range of human service environments, indigenous and non-indigenous. We fundamentally believe that 60 000+ years of knowledge and ways of thinking and doing can actually benefit all people.

Our team have diverse skills, qualifications and cultural teachings, to enable us to work across community and business environments. Facilitating change, building relationships and connections, and empowering people to work collectively, is what we do best

The Ochre and Salt logo represents the connections we have as humans, with shared humanity: while our life experiences and expressions may be diverse, we all have the capacity to show compassion, care for one another and build strong, well communities.

Blue

The blue outline represents the ocean, salt, and relates to the work we do from coast to coast in partnership with a range of communities and organisations.

yellow ochre

The yellow ochre – the earth – connects us all. From the coast, to the desert, to the hills and the waterways, we are, by nature, all connected.

PINK

The pink, the heart, represents the responsibility we all have in working to create communities that allow us to thrive and set the foundation for generations to come.

WHITE

Finally, the seven white bodies reflect the seven generations to come. This is a story told by one of our Elders, which relates to the idea that as adults, if we took action, made decisions and cared for Country and for each other, in a way that considered the future needs of the next seven generations, the world would be a better place.

Our team have diverse skills, qualifications and cultural teachings, to enable us to work across community and business environments. Facilitating change, building relationships and connections, and empowering people to work collectively, is what we do best.
