Welcome to Aboriginal Affairs NSW
Aboriginal Affairs works with Aboriginal communities to promote social, economic and cultural wellbeing through opportunity, choice, healing, responsibility and empowerment. We implement OCHRE, the NSW Government’s plan for Aboriginal affairs, establish partnerships for economic prosperity, support effective Aboriginal community governance and strengthen cultural identity and language. See our 2016-2019 Strategic Plan.
We respect Aboriginal peoples as the first peoples and custodians of NSW.
