The Victorian Government has developed a strengthened Victorian Aboriginal Affairs Framework 2013 - 2018 to bring together Government and Aboriginal community commitments and efforts and create a better future for Victoria’s Aboriginal population. Significantly the VAAF recognises and values Aboriginal culture, integrates government effort, identifies the accountabilities of Government departments, agencies and funded service providers. This will enable more effective monitoring and evaluation of performance. The VAAF focuses effort and resources on six Strategic Action Areas that are central to closing the gap in Aboriginal disadvantage. Through the VAAF the Government is committing to 12 headline indicators with achievable targets.
