Aboriginal outcomes

Acknowledgement of Country

Aboriginal Outcomes acknowledges that it stands on Aboriginal land. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land, and we show our respect for Elders past, present and emerging through thoughtful and collaborative approaches to our work, seeking to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to providing places in which Aboriginal people are included socially, culturally, and economically.

The department's commitment to Aboriginal outcomes delivers real practical benefits with NSW Aboriginal communities.

We aim to positively impact Aboriginal people and communities by delivering funded initiatives that improve services and amenity to Aboriginal communities and elevate the work done on Country.

The Our Place on Country Strategy

The department’s work affects Country, Aboriginal peoples and communities.​​​​​​​

In acknowledgement of this, we have developed the Our Place on Country (OPOC) strategy in step with the NSW Government’s OCHRE Plan, so the department can be better placed to enhance opportunities for Aboriginal people and communities to have greater choice, access and control over land, water, housing and resources.

The OPOC strategy will guide the department to:

  • improve Aboriginal outcomes across New South Wales
  • deepen the departments cultural understanding
  • deliver better services in partnership with Aboriginal communities
  • become an employer of choice for Aboriginal peoples.

The strategy aligns with:

The department's Aboriginal outcomes includes: Closing the Gap, Roads to Home, and Healthy Country.
