Our vision statement …

”Let’s get together … Indigenous and Non Indigenous Australians share this nation. When we come together we can benefit from the many gifts and talents people from all cultural backgrounds have. Coming together in respect and friendship will lay the foundation for all Australians to find health and happiness. When we come together for the good of all people, we can reach our potential as a ‘whole’ nation.”

Working with Aboriginal people who held key positions in Aboriginal communities and in the Australian workforce, Aussie Gateways personnel have researched and developed a variety of resources and programs designed to improve the health status of Aboriginal people, encourage greater Aboriginal representation in Local Government and facilitate increased education and training opportunities for Aboriginal people.
