The Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement (ALRM) is South Australia’s Peak Body named in the Partnership Agreement and as such has supported the establishment of the South Australian Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation Network (SAACCON).
SAACCON is a network of Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs) in SA and has been established to provide advice, recommendations and guidance to the Coalition of Peaks, and the South Australian, Commonwealth and Local Governments on the Refresh of Closing the Gap 2019-2029.
It sits under the auspice of the ALRM and is an unincorporated body; it has no board or office holders. Instead, its members, senior Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representatives of ACCOs, with responsibilities for Closing the Gap, will make decisions as equals in relation to policy, strategy and governance.
Members of SAACCON are representative of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s interests in Closing the Gap as they are directly involved in the delivery and monitoring of services to their communities and families across Australia.
South Australian Aboriginal communities will be engaged in its determination of what a statewide structure for SA will look like to ensure urban, regional and remote communities are included in informing the Refresh of Closing the Gap 2019-2029.
