Stark Indigenous inequality calls for governments to reset agenda
- The failure of successive governments to listen to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is condemning too many Indigenous Australians to stark inequality and entrenched disadvantage, according to an Oxfam report published today.
Oxfam Australia Chief Executive Dr Helen Szoke said the report found much of the funding for Indigenous services was inadequate, misdirected, uncertain and lacking in transparency.
Dr Szoke said new economic analysis by Oxfam had found more than one in five Indigenous households were in Australia's poorest 10 per cent of households – more than twice the rest of Australia.
