Indigenous Affairs Initiatives Booklet

Indigenous Affairs Initiatives Booklet

It gives me great pleasure to share with you some of the practical solutions the Canberra Liberals have been developing in partnership with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Improving the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of the ACT proposes a suite of measures to support the ACT’s Indigenous community in health, education and youth programs, business, justice and community participation.

Our overarching policy vision is ‘To work with and empower the Indigenous community to reach their potential.’ To achieve this vision it is necessary to support both self-determination on an individual and community level. We believe these initiatives offer a range of practical solutions that support community members to meet their social, cultural and economic needs.

Each of our initiatives takes into consideration concerns raised by leaders in the Indigenous community, as well as community Elders and everyday families who feel left behind, unsupported and undervalued.

The Canberra Liberals are committed to working with the Indigenous community to build a better, more inclusive Canberra for all Indigenous Canberrans.

We look forward to releasing further policies in the lead up to the 2020 election so that both Indigenous Canberrans and the wider community can appreciate that we offer a fresh, practical and positive approach to this important policy area.
