NSW Coalition of Aboriginal Peak Organisations (NSW CAPO) has supported the National Agreement on Closing the Gap signed by the National Cabinet, the Australian Local Government Association and the Coalition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peak organisations today.
The National Agreement signals a turning point in the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander people and governments – one that is based on shared decision making on policies and programs that impact Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s lives.
NSW CAPO came together with more than fifty other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community controlled peak bodies to advocate for Aboriginal communities to bring change with how
governments were going about Closing the Gap.
