There is a significant gap between the life outcomes of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in Western Australia. The gap is most acute in remote areas.
In many remote Aboriginal communities, poor living conditions negatively affect the health of residents, and their participation in school and work.
The State Government’s view, outlined in the regional services reform roadmap, is that living conditions in regional and remote areas must improve through mutual accountability between households, communities and government.
Improved living conditions will provide a better foundation of family wellbeing and childhood development.
