As an Indigenous business, it’s important for Barpa to remain connected with other indigenous businesses so we can continue to support each other.
We strive to engage more Indigenous businesses in our operations as we grow. This is a core principle of Barpa, as we believe that a strong Indigenous business sector will greatly assist in ‘Closing the Gap’.
We are associated with organisations that link with Indigenous Businesses.
