The PNABC program is currently not running, but Pathfinders is determined to source additional funds to keep this vital program operating.
The Pathfinders Aboriginal Birth Certificate Project, is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Program that aims to redress this issue by conducting sign-up days in towns and areas where there are significant numbers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who don’t have birth certificates. Since the program’s inception approximately 4,700 people have gained access to their birth certificates.

We continue to advocate and lobby for additional funding and to make the process simpler and more affordable for all Australians. Private and corporate donations are welcome.
Pathfinders recognises that in the absence of a Birth Certificate it may be difficult to produce the forms of identification required to apply for a certificate. Several forms of identification are still required by law and Parents/Guardians and young people 16 yrs and over must bring 3 forms of ID from the following:
