AIDA is a member of the Coalition of Peaks on Closing the Gap. The Coalition formed a Joint partnership with the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) to collaborate on the Closing the Gap Refresh process. An important objective of the work of the Coalition is to negotiate a new National Agreement on Closing the Gap.
The new National Agreement will set out how governments and the Coalition will work over the next ten years to improve the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples across Australia. More detailed information is outlined in documents below.
The Coalition encourages individuals and organisations to have their say on what should be included in the new National Agreement.
AIDA plans to support member feedback to this process in a number of ways:
- Webinar for members – during the week 14-18 October – exact date to be advised
- State forums – These forums will take place before 25 October and we will advise members when they are available
- Online survey – Have Your Say (Survey closes Friday, 8 November)
