calendar icon 19 April 2021 - 30 April 2021
clock icon 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

The NSW Coalition of Aboriginal Peaks (NSW CAPO) is pleased to invite you to the first round of 2021 engagement sessions around Closing the Gap. The National Partnership Agreement on Closing the Gap is built around four Priority Reforms to change the way in which governments work with Aboriginal People.

The priority reforms are:

  1. Formal partnerships and shared decision making
  2. Building the community-controlled sector
  3. Transforming government organisations
  4. Shared Access to Data and Information at a Regional Level
  5. Economic Prosperity and Employment (additional for NSW)

We want to get your views about what is needed to drive these priority reforms and make the lives of Aboriginal people better. Your views will help to create practical action that could be included in NSW Implementation Plan (NIP) to support Aboriginal people, communities and organisations in taking charge of their own lives and development. JIPs will include actions to achieve the priority reforms, funding, timeframes and accountability mechanisms.

A Community Companion document has been written to help explain to you more about the National Partnership Agreement and the Priority Reforms we will be discussing.

There are a range of ways you can join in the conversation!!

FACE TO FACE – If you would like to come to a face to face consultation please choose the location that you would prefer and register your attendance at the Event Brite link next to the location (see below).
