As we learn more about the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on all facets of society, the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) continues to pour time into being across the latest expert health advice and warnings.
NSWALC has stressed that it is not an authority on these matters, but it does take on the responsibility of ensuring its members are provided with appropriate and timely advice where possible.
To assist the community, NSWALC has today launched a dedicated COVID-19 information page on its website. There you will find a number of relevant links to material from the leading authorities. It will continue to be updated as this health crisis evolves.
At times like these it is also important to tell and share stories of what is happening in our communities across the state. On the dedicated COVID-19 page you will find links to a range of stories which give a voice to our people. This includes a number of special episodes of our podcast A Cuppa and A Yarn which has so far focused on speaking to LALC CEO’s to share what is happening in areas across the state.
If you have a great story to tell or know of something that is happening in your community, please get in touch with the NSWALC media team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Council remains committed to its core purpose of protecting the interests and furthering the aspirations of its members and the broader Aboriginal community in New South Wales.
However, these are extraordinary times and considerable efforts are being made to support the Land Rights Network and the Land Council system through this health crisis.
