Surprisingly, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have not always been partners with the government on the Closing The Gap framework.

The opportunity to contribute as equal partners in the process with COAG and the Federal Government has only been in place since 2018. Since that time, the Coalition of Peaks has been formed, representing over 40 community-led Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations.

They have since been meeting to develop strategies that put the needs of First Nations people up front, and consider the best ways to deliver programs to truly make a difference.
