The Coalition of Peaks is a representative body of around fifty Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled peak organisations and members. The Coalition of Peaks have worked for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities for a long time and have come together as an act of self-determination to be formal partners with Australian governments to enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in share in decision-making in Closing the Gap at national, state and regional levels to improve the life outcomes of our people.
The Coalition of Peaks came together to change the way Australian governments work with our people. As community-controlled organisations, the Coalition of Peaks work for and are accountable to our communities, not governments. The Coalition of Peaks share a belief that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should have a meaningful say on policies and programs that impact on us through formal partnerships with Australian governments at all levels.
The Coalition of Peaks are negotiating a new National Agreement on Closing the Gap (NationalAgreement) with Australian governments. The new National Agreement will set out howgovernments and the Coalition of Peaks will work together to improve the lives of Aboriginal andTorres Strait Islander people.
