Community Advocate

(Question No 723)

Mrs Burke asked the Attorney-General, upon notice, on 20 October 2005:

What activities did the Office of the Community Advocate undertake that were consistent with the ACT Government's Indigenous Partnership Plan.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

The government is currently developing an across-government policy framework in relation to Indigenous Affairs, and is looking to develop a draft Partnership Plan in collaboration with the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Consultative Council.

The Office of the Community Advocate (OCA) will review this plan, and, where appropriate, will ensure that the activities of the office are consistent with the principles of the plan. Additionally, in undertaking its current activities, the OCA provides best interests advocacy on behalf of adults with a disability, children and young people, an over-representative proportion of whom are Indigenous.
