National Agreement with Coalition of Peaks on Closing the Gap

The Australian government and the Coalition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community-Controlled Peak Bodies (Coalition of Peaks) have signed a historic agreement on Closing the Gap.  The Agreement contains four significant Priority Reforms to achieve improved life outcomes for First Nations people: shared decision-making; strengthening the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled sector; improving government mainstream institutions; and ensuring First Nations people have access to relevant data and information. Part of the commitment includes reducing the overrepresentation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in out-of-home care by 45% by 2031. Read the Agreement or view SNAICC’s media release for further information on proposed outcomes from the Agreement.
