Gugan Gulwan Youth Aboriginal Corporation

Statement by minister

MR RATTENBURY (Molonglo—Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Minister for Corrections, Minister for Housing, Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs and Minister for Ageing), by leave: I would like to remind members that in my speech of 19 March 2014, in response to the motion moved by Mr Wall and endorsed by the Assembly which called on "the ACT government to investigate options for providing additional space for Gugan Gulwan Youth Aboriginal Corporation and report on the results of this investigation to the Assembly by the end of April 2014", and which was subsequently amended, I agreed to provide a further update to the Assembly about progress made in finding additional suitable accommodation for Gugan Gulwan.

As I have stated previously, I have great respect for the work of the Gugan Gulwan Youth Aboriginal Corporation and the outcomes it achieves for young Aboriginal people and their families. Finding additional accommodation so that Gugan Gulwan can expand its current programs and alleviate the space pressures at its existing centre is one of my priorities.
