Stolen Generations Advisory Committee

The NSW Government has established a Stolen Generations Advisory Committee to support the implementation of the NSW Government Response to ‘Unfinished Business’. The Stolen Generations Advisory Committee reports to the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and the Premier on issues impacting on Stolen Generations survivors.

The Committee has been extended until May 2023. Through the Advisory Committee survivor representatives from the four NSW Stolen Generations Organisations – Kinchela Boys’ Home Aboriginal Corporation, Coota Girls Aboriginal Corporation, Children of the Bomaderry Aboriginal Children’s Home Incorporated and the NSW/ACT Stolen Generations Council – work with government officials from the Departments responsible for delivering services or supports for Stolen Generations survivors.

Some Stolen Generations Organisations have chosen to nominate an additional representative, to participate when one of the two members representing their organisation is not available.

The Advisory Committee members are:

  • Aunty Christine Blakeney, Children of Bomaderry Aboriginal Children's Home Incorporated
  • Aunty Pamela Dixon, Children of Bomaderry Aboriginal Children's Home Incorporated
  • Uncle James Michael Welsh, Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation
