The Australian Government today released the latest report from the Coordinator General for Remote Indigenous Services, Mr Brian Gleeson, on progress in delivering government services to people living in the 29 priority Indigenous locations across Australia.
The report details the performance of governments in implementing the National Partnership Agreement on Remote Service Delivery.
The Coordinator General reports that to date “measurable and significant results have been delivered in all Remote Service Delivery communities”.
The report highlights the following progress in the priority Indigenous locations:
Under the Remote Service Delivery National Partnership Agreement, governments have provided $291.2 million over six years to improve access to services for Indigenous Australians in remote areas.
The Coordinator General has the authority to coordinate across agencies and cut through bureaucratic red tape to make sure services are delivered effectively.
While this report shows that progress is being made in the priority Indigenous locations, we know there is more work to be done.
The Australian Government is committed to delivering change at the community level and will continue to drive a whole of government approach to delivering on the National Partnership Agreement.
The assistance of the Coordinator General, the states and Northern Territory, and community leaders is helping the Australian Government achieve improvements on the ground.
