Coalition’s key support areas
FEDERAL Indigenous Affairs Minister Nigel Scullion says the Coalition is committed to working with Aboriginal communities rather than “doing things to them”.
Senator Scullion said his government’s key focus was jobs, education and family violence.
“More children are going to school with the help of our Remote School Attendance Strategy,” Senator Scullion said.
“Adults are being trained into guaranteed jobs through our programs to drive real employment outcomes.
“Significant funds have been directed towards dealing with issues around violence in indigenous communities as part of our national commitment to protecting women and children from violence.”
“These priorities are fundamental to ensuring that individuals in communities are engaged in meaningful activities, whether that is education, training or work.”
COMMITTED: Nigel Scullion.
