Closing the Gap Report 2020

Today the Prime Minister tabled the 12th Closing the Gap Report in Parliament.

The report reveals that the early childhood education and Year 12 attainment targets are on track, while heartening improvements have been made in reading and numeracy, employment and health.

This year’s report marks a new era for Closing the Gap, and reflects a greater focus on partnership between governments and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It provides a progress update on the existing Closing the Gap framework and targets, and highlights some of the work underway towards developing a new strengths-based, community-led agenda.
