Coali­tion’s key sup­port ar­eas

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

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.”
