Action plan

The Queensland Government made a firm commitment to progress local solutions and decision-making with Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people.

This first Local Thriving Communities action plan (PDF, 2.4 MB) action plan (DOCX, 1.2 MB) sets out actions to be implemented in the short term underpinned by the principles of self-determination.

Through the action plan the Queensland Government has committed to better support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to:

  • make decisions about their own future
  • build on their strengths as a community
  • invest in the things that will make communities stronger and make a difference to people’s lives.

The action plan shows a transparent and accountable approach to the reform across government and highlights how local solutions will build capacity to support the reframed relationship with Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.

The Joint Coordinating Committee worked in partnership with the Queensland Government to co-design the action plan, provide cultural insight and build government readiness.
