The Regional Services Reform team is working to address the significant and historic gap between the life outcomes of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Western Australians in regional and remote areas, with a particular focus on the Kimberley and Pilbara.

The vision for regional services reform is for Aboriginal families in regional and remote Western Australia to be more resilient and for Aboriginal communities to be stronger.

Our work focuses on long-term, systemic change. It aims to improve outcomes and provide Aboriginal people in regional and remote areas with access to the life opportunities enjoyed elsewhere in the State.

The reform concentrates on three concerns:

  1. Improved living conditions that enable families to prosper and don't hold them back.
  2. Supporting families to build their skills, and overcome any barriers to doing so, through improved service redesign and delivery.
  3. Education, employment and housing opportunities, and support for families to take them up.

Collaboration between the State Government, Aboriginal people, Commonwealth Government, local government and service providers is integral to the implementation and the success of regional services reform.
