Collaborate NSW – A resource kit for Local Government

Collaborate NSW is a printable resource kit and website created by Local Government NSW, with the assistance of the NSW Office of Local Government, the NSW Aboriginal Land Council, Aboriginal Affairs NSW and NSW Planning and Environment to encourage the inclusion of Aboriginal communities in council decision making, service development and delivery.

First Australians have an enormous cultural, social and economic contribution to make to our communities, and collaboration with local Aboriginal communities benefits all.

All NSW’s councils are encouraged to use this resource as a first step to unlock this potential and to create common ground, strengthen local communities and work with other spheres of government to achieve reconciliation with Aboriginal Australians.
