The Redfern Statement Ministerial Forum was held on 17 August 2017 at Australian Parliament House. Members of the Prime Minister’s Indigenous Advisory Council, Ms Andrea Mason and Cr Fraser Nai attended. Also in attendance were Minister Scullion, Minister Wyatt, Assistant Minister Prentice, Senator Pat Dodson, and representatives of the 18 organisations who are signatories to the Redfern Statement.

The Ministerial Forum is the culmination of the five sector specific workshops that were run this year as part of the engagement process between the Commonwealth Government and the members of the Redfern Statement Alliance. The sector workshops were Disability, Child Development & Safety & Wellbeing, Health, Justice/Violence Prevention, and Housing.

Council members welcomed the opportunity to continue to engage with Redfern Alliance leaders and invited them to attend a meeting of the Council to discuss the policy areas covered and possible next steps.
