Warnakati as the
community and business
Headed up by Leonie Barnes, a daughter of the Northern Territory, Warnakati Solutions is a place where solutions are needs driven and community led, where duty bearers are not prioritized over rights holders; and voices are equally heard, yet the right decisions are made at the right times.
Warnakati in Tiwi language means “something that is strong”. Here at Warnakati we believe that one of the big gaps in the not for profit sector is the ability to speak the language of big business in a way that adds value to the work of a not for profit organisation without compromising their values.
“Everything is simple until you put people into the problem, yet unless they are recognised and valued as a part of the problem they are never going to be part of the solution. If people of the community are not part of the solution, there will not be a solution”
Leonie Barnes, Director Warnakati Solutions
