Advancing Australia with broad-based policy advice
We provide advice on major domestic policy and national security matters.
We support the Prime Minister and the Cabinet with trusted advice on Indigenous affairs, domestic policy, national security and international policy, guest of government visits, digital transformation and more.
Women and children‘s safety
We oversee the $100 million package to provide safety for at-risk women and children as part of the Government’s response to domestic violence.
The Cities Taskforce focuses on the opportunities and challenges facing our cities, providing solutions through the Smart Cities Plan and City Deals.
