As committed during the Closing the Gap Engagements in April 2021, we are reporting back to community on what we've heard.

NSW CAPO is pleased to invite you to the second round of 2021 Engagement Sessions around Closing the Gap. The National Partnership Agreement on Closing the Gap is built around four Priority Reforms and 17 Socio Economic Outcomes to change the way in which governments work with Aboriginal People.

Focus Areas - Socio-Economic Outcomes

The 17 socio-economic outcomes have been identified in focus areas that include education, employment, health and wellbeing, justice, safety, housing, land and waters, and languages.

The Engagement Sessions group these reforms and outcomes into 13 focus areas that you can attend.

Survey - Priority Reforms and Socio-Economic Outcomes

The second-round of consultations are targeted by topic so community members can decide which session and survey topic is most relevant. This round of engagements will build on the previous 2019 and April 2021 engagement sessions in NSW. We would like the NSW Aboriginal community’s input into the 17 Socio Economic targets and ‘how’ do we achieve these goals.

This survey covers 13 topic areas around the Priority Reforms and Socio-Economic Outcomes of the Closing the Gap National Agreement. You are invited to complete all topic areas or only areas of interest.

Please navigate through the survey and complete what is relevant for you.
