Victorian Aboriginal Affairs Framework

The Victorian Aboriginal Affairs Framework

The Victorian Aboriginal Affairs Framework (VAAF) brings together Government and Aboriginal community commitments and efforts to create a better future for Victoria's Aboriginal population. The VAAF was released on 22 November 2012.

Significantly the VAAF recognises and values Aboriginal culture, integrates Government effort, and identifies the accountabilities of Government departments, agencies and funded service providers. This will enable more effective monitoring and evaluation of performance.

The VAAF focuses effort and resources on six Strategic Action Areas that are central to closing the gap in Aboriginal disadvantage. Through the VAAF the Government has committed to 12 headline indicators with targets.

The VAAF provides for jointed up responses across priority areas to strengthen Aboriginal self-determination.

The VAAF is available at the below links:
