Aboriginal access to government services

The Victorian Government Aboriginal Inclusion Framework was developed after extensive consultation with Aboriginal communities. It helps to ensure services are accessible and inclusive for Aboriginal Victorians. It also acts to provide more employment opportunities to Aboriginal Victorians.

The Framework's objective is 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.
