The Coalition of Peaks acknowledge and pay respect to Elders, both past and present and all generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples now and into the future as the Traditional Owners of this land.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices or names of people who may have passed away.



We want to share our work with you and hear from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and organisations about how Closing the Gap is working in your communities. We are committed to providing you with information about the work of the Coalition of Peaks and commitments made by Australian governments on Closing the Gap so that you can talk to governments officials in your own communities about making the Partnership Agreement and the National Agreement on Closing the Gap work for you.

We will continue to update this page with resources on the National Agreement on Closing the Gap.

Below you’ll find links to resources you can use in your own communities.
