First Nations-led solutions

The annual Close the Gap Campaign Report highlights the many success stories from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-led programs, services and initiatives working to close the gap.

The 2023 Close the Gap Campaign Report “Strong Culture, Strong Youth: Our Legacy Our Future”, documents, through eight case studies, organisations and individuals work in communities to enrich the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and youth.

One of the most encouraging aspects of these case studies is the way in which they detail and have drawn on self-determination to address some of the most important issues identified in the communities they work with.

Many showcase the leadership of a new generation of hands-on activists, while others demonstrate how a focus on young people’s key concerns and aspirations can be a powerful engine for positive change. Importantly, they draw attention to the essential role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-led decision-making and self- determination in shaping a vision of health and wellbeing built upon a strong cultural foundation.
