ALPA’s core vision is creating “unity through enterprise”. ALPA now embraces a whole-of-community approach by contributing to the development of local economies through its retail arm, which naturally enough provides goods and services to community people, but also provides employment and training of local people; to the peoples’ health and wellbeing through Community Services; to their growth of Indigenous-owned and operated enterprise, through Training and the Corporate Services and Enterprise and Economic Development arms.

ALPA aims to enhance social and economic development wherever we operate, while continuing to embrace our cultural heritage.

ALPA is financially-independent and therefore not reliant on external funding or subsidies. ALPA self-funds business development to increase employment and improve services to the community. Any surplus from our retail arm is made available to member communities through our Benevolent Programs. ALPA is a not-for-profit, registered charity in Australia.
