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 sought feedback from the Aboriginal community, organisations and service providers about the development of the strategy in April 2014.

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


The Aboriginal Partnerships Plan 2011–2014

The Aboriginal Partnerships Plan 2011–2014 was adopted by Council in November 2010.

The plan builds on several years of extensive work in collaboration with Yarra’s Aboriginal community.

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.
