Consultations

Consultations have now been conducted in every capital city and some regional centres.

The consultations are a critical part of understanding the key concerns and challenges, as well as identifying leading practices and effective strategies.

The Inquiry is interested in hearing the views, experiences and ideas for change from as many people as possible.

Following is a video explaining in Auslan how you can be involved in the consultation process or make a submission to the Inquiry.
