Partnership responsibilities and commitments

Shared decision-making through First Peoples governance structures is crucial to ensure self-determining and culturally appropriate responses are provided for the Victorian Aboriginal community.

All parties are jointly responsible for overseeing Victoria’s actions to achieve the objectives of the National Agreement. In addition, Ngaweeyan Maar-oo’s sector representatives will also have responsibilities set out in funding agreements with the Department of Premier and Cabinet (per ‘Accountabilities’ set out below).

The Partnership Forum seeks to ensure that community voices determine how Victoria meets its commitments under the National Agreement. Through Ngaweeyan Maar-oo, the partnership will undertake community engagement and work as an ACCO sector representative group. For the Victorian Government, this is a welcome opportunity to learn from our partners and transform the way we work together.
