Each year the Australian Government’s Report Card is presented to the Australian public. The Report draws public attention to the Australian governments’ commitment to ‘closing the gap’ between life experiences of First Nations and Non-First Nations Australians.
However, the annual reports have shown the ongoing failure to improve the quality of life and opportunities for First Nations people compared to the rest of Australia.
Children’s Ground is showing how self-determination in action can change outcomes for First Nations people.
“Children’s Ground was started by our people as their movement to not simply close the gap but to prevent it ever opening for the next generation of children. Each of the new Closing the Gap targets are achievable by implementing systems like Children’s Ground that tackle the key social, cultural and economic determinants for the future of our children.”
– William Tilmouth, Children’s Ground Founding Chair
