The Government of South Australia is committed to working in partnership to close the gap and improve the lives of Aboriginal people in South Australia.
Together with the South Australian Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation Network (SAACCON), we’re proud to launch the state’s first implementation plan for the National Agreement on Closing the Gap.
South Australia’s implementation plan sets out our state’s plan for achieving and addressing the priority reforms and socio-economic targets embedded in the Closing the Gap Agreement to ensure the lives of Aboriginal people in South Australia can improve in all cultural, social and economic aspects.
Containing more than 200 government agency actions, the plan has a focus on delivering positive outcomes in the areas of employment and business, improving the quality of government services, and designing measures that will strengthen the capability of Aboriginal corporations and organisations.
This implementation plan is just the beginning for the refreshed Closing the Gap Agreement. As we move into the implementation phase, we will continue to engage with the Aboriginal community to create tangible and practical initiatives that will strengthen the wellbeing of Aboriginal South Australians.
