Welcome to Aboriginal Affairs NSW
Every Aboriginal person and community is thriving and celebrated.
This is our vision at Aboriginal Affairs NSW. We connect, listen, advocate and enable Aboriginal Communities to lead accountability and
change across Government.
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.
