About

Mission

To support our members to achieve and enhance respect, recognition, reconciliation, equity, health and wellbeing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people in our community.

Purpose

  • To enhance and promote Aboriginal culture, society and heritage throughout the lands and waters of the ICACC members.
  • To link Aboriginal communities to the broader community and services.
  • To identify needs and gaps in services/support for our Aboriginal communities and develop strategies to address these needs.
  • To develop partnerships which involve the Aboriginal community in decisions that affect them.
  • To contribute to, and encourage, strategic planning and policy development for the advancement of social/cultural, economic and environmental issues relevant to our Aboriginal communities.

History

Formed in 1997 out of an initiative by the Municipal Association of Victoria, ICACC was established by a group of Local Government Councils, Aboriginal organisations, service providers and Aboriginal community members who came together to address issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities within this region.

The ICACC secretariat was formed in 2005. Equally funded by the member Councils, the secretariat is staffed by a part-time employee who provides administrative support to the ICACC Committee and its members. The secretariat is hosted by ICACC member Councils on a two-year rotating basis.
