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.

The NSW Government’s interim response to the independent evaluation of OCHRE

OCHRE Five Years On is the NSW Government’s interim response to the independent evaluation of OCHRE and the formal response it has received from the NSW Coalition of Aboriginal Regional Alliances (NCARA). The interim response provides an opportunity for the NSW Government to reiterate its commitment to OCHRE and the ongoing change in the nature of the relationship with communities that it represents. The NSW Government will release its full response to the OCHRE evaluation in 2019.
