The Central Coast Aboriginal Interagency Network (CCAIN) provides a forum to share information, strategies and programs that empower the Aboriginal community to fully access all available services, programs, facilities and to achieve specific service provision which is culturally appropriate.
CCAIN members comprise of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal government and non-government service providers, workers and community members committed to sharing information to improve access to services and outcomes for the Aboriginal community.

b) Promote cultural respect and provide information among the community, organisations and service providers to the specific needs of Aboriginal people
c) Actively lobby and advocate as a united network on relevant and important issues to the Aboriginal community
d) Act as a support network for Aboriginal services and workers, both on a formal and informal basis
e) Encourage participation from Aboriginal families, Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal workers, and community networks at interagency meetings.
