Abstract: This Government wants to work with Indigenous Australians and communities to make real improvements in their lives. We will do this while recognising the special place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our national story. The Commonwealth’s Indigenous Affairs agenda is aimed at building on previous work – but with a greater focus on areas that have been shown to improve outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. There are three priority areas that have been proven to have a positive effect on the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples: • getting children to school to provide the best chance of enjoying success in school and later in life • getting adults into work to ensure Indigenous Australians participate in the modern economy • making Indigenous communities safer for people to live, work and raise their families.
