About Us

Abbott Native Title Trustees (ANTT) has been operating as a trustee for Native Title trusts since 2001 when it commenced a trustee role in Port Hedland, Western Australia. Since then it has grown to include trustee roles across Western Australia including the Pilbara, Goldfields and Murchison regions.

It has established an experienced team based in Perth which works closely with all of its trusts, travelling to these regions to meet with the representatives of each group to ensure we provide a professional, transparent and fair service.

Since 2001 ANTT has provided other services to Aboriginal companies (ASIC) and corporations (ORIC) including administration, accounting and bookkeeping.

It also assists these entities to liaise and do business with mining companies, local government and state government agencies by providing logistical and facilitation services for meetings and heritage surveys.

Our aim is to provide a dedicated, respectful, professional, transparent and a fair service to all of our clients.

“We understand the need for trustees to work closely with Aboriginal people and have worked hard to build a team capable of providing a respectful relationship with each group.”

Native Title Trustees

We understand the need for trustees to work closely with Aboriginal people and have worked hard to build a team capable of providing a respectful relationship with each group.

Once appointed as trustee for a native title group we meet with the group representatives on their country where we work closely to identify the needs of each group and the best way to ensure programs deliver the best outcomes.

This usually involves preparing policies and procedures for funding programs which satisfy the planning objectives of the group, while at the same time meeting the objectives of the Trust Deed.

Our support for each trust includes:

Abbott Native Title Trustees (ANTT) offers trustee services to the Aboriginal community across Australia. The primary role of ANTT is as trustee for a number of Native Title trusts established as a result of native title agreements primarily between Aboriginal claim groups and mining companies or State Government agencies.
