Aboriginal inclusion and reconciliation

Victorian Government Aboriginal Inclusion Framework

The Inclusion Framework helps ensure services are accessible and inclusive for Aboriginal Victorians and provides for increased employment opportunities.

The Victorian Government Aboriginal Inclusion Framework is an initiative of the Secretaries Leadership Group on Aboriginal Affairs. It was developed after extensive consultation with Aboriginal communities.

Acknowledgment and respect of Aboriginal culture, values and practices is at the heart of successful engagement with Aboriginal people.

The Framework outlines the objective to provide all Victorian Government policy makers, program managers and service providers with a structure for reviewing their practice and reforming the way they engage with and address the needs of Aboriginal people in Victoria. This is fundamental to supporting the Government's work to deliver better outcomes for Aboriginal Victorians.
