Today marks National Closing the Gap Day - a national day of action and an opportunity for all Australians across the country to unite and pledge support to achieving equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in health and life expectancy.
We understand the crucial role our organisation has to play in closing the gap for Aboriginal people.
Through our services, programs and staff we can help achieve many of the targets within the National Agreement, particularly assisting Aboriginal people to secure affordable housing that meets individual priorities and needs.
We’re also excited to be leading the development of the State Government’s Aboriginal Housing Strategy. This strategy will support key government initiatives and policies, including directly supporting the four priority reforms contained in the National Agreement.
We encourage you to join us by pledging your personal commitment to Closing the Gap, pledge now on the Australians for Native Title and Reconciliation website.
