About  Us

InComPro

InComPro was established in 2001 to provide a range of culturally appropriate services to the Aboriginal people, organisations and communities in South Australia. The name InComPro is an abbreviation of Indigenous Community Professionals.

Founding company proprietors, Steven Newchurch and Jason Bromley identified a need for high-quality support services aimed at Aboriginal communities. As leading members of their respective families, both Steven and Jason have been involved in service delivery in their communities and began by running small programs with a focus on family support.

InComPro expanded in 2008 to welcome Ron Newchurch who brought a new perspective to the services offered by InComPro including the introduction of youth camps. InComPro continued to operate on a small scale providing services for Aboriginal people who had suffered with substance abuse issues and mental illness. This led to the engagement of Steve Edwards and Darrien Bromley, individually contributing clinical expertise in the community controlled health sector.

Tim Ritchie and Klynton Wanganeen joined the InComPro Board in 2012 offering experience in vocational education and employment as well as extensive expertise in governance, community engagement and politics on a state and national level.

With a complete line-up of experienced and dedicated staff, InComPro has grown to include cultural intervention in health and educational services, culturally appropriate governance and financial and management services.
