Senate Select Committee on Regional and Remote Indigenous Communities: Fourth report


The committee was established to report on the effectiveness of Australian Government policies following the Northern Territory Emergency Response, specifically on the state of health, welfare, education and law and order in regional and remote Indigenous communities; the impact of state and territory government policies on the wellbeing of regional and remote Indigenous communities; the health, welfare, education and security of children in regional and remote Indigenous communities; and the employment and enterprise opportunities in regional and remote Indigenous communities. This report provides an update on the Commonwealth policy framework guiding Indigenous Affairs in Australia. It also outlines the Council of Australian Government’s Closing the Gap national policy and focuses on the Committee’s visit to Queensland. Among recommendations covering general policy and practice in service delivery and reporting, one relates to routine hearing assessments for new entrants to the corrections system.
