Aboriginal Partnerships Plan

''As part of its commitment to the values of reconciliation, social justice and respect, Council is developing a new Aboriginal Partnership Strategy 2015-18.

The strategy outlines Council’s commitment to the Aboriginal community and provides a clear and strategic direction with regard to supporting the community’s cultural and physical wellbeing.

Council is seeking feedback from the Aboriginal community, organisations and service providers about the development of the strategy.

Have your say

Council would like to hear your thoughts and feedback on how we can support the Aboriginal community and promote reconciliation and cultural understanding.

To have your say, please fill in this online Aboriginal Partnerships Strategy Survey.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete and is governed by Council’s Privacy Policy. The survey closes on  Friday 2 May.

For further information about the survey or strategy, contact Colin Hunter, Aboriginal Partnerships Officer, on 9205 5014 or at colin.hunter@yarracity.vic.gov.au

Underpinned by the values of reconciliation, social justice and respect, the plan aims to strengthen partnerships between Council, the Aboriginal community, other levels of government and the local non-Indigenous community.

The plan also identifies strategies to:

  • create and develop opportunities with Council’s partners
  • acknowledge, understand and celebrate Aboriginal culture
  • address disadvantage and social justice issues, and
  • work towards the elimination of racism.
