Empowering people and their communities

Education, employment and training have always been fundamental to Bamara’s commitment to helping local communities prosper, we’re able to grow our programs and services in the jobs and employment sector to help further people achieve economic independence.


ParentsNext is a government pre-employment program that supports parents and carers who receive Parenting Payments as they navigate and prepare for the next stage in their career or education.

At Bamara, we understand that everything you do is for your kids but balancing work and family life can be difficult.

ParentsNext provides support and resources to help you build your confidence and skills.

Dubbo Opportunity Hub

Dubbo Opportunity Hub (DHUB) is a program of support that works closely with the schools in Dubbo and Wellington to build the confidence and knowledge of Aboriginal students to achieve their desired career pathway.

DHUB is a whole community approach. We create links between schools, employers, training providers, support services and Aboriginal communities and work in partnership to find and create opportunities.  

Driver Licensing Access Program

The Driver Licensing Access Program (DLAP) is a free learning to drive program.

It makes getting your driver licence accessible for community groups that may have difficulty due to employment, education, family, training, or lack of support.


Bamara Care is a registered provider of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Our people care – we’re here to support you and your life choices.

All Bamara Care’s passionate and highly trained staff have the experience, qualifications and dedication to help you live the life you choose.

Education and Training

The mission of Bamara Education and Training is to increase the economic independence of individuals and build the capacity of communities through our education and training services. 

Our quality-assured and nationally recognised qualifications are delivered nationwide through our Registered Training Organisation with the Australian Skills Quality Authority.
