This year’s theme for the National NAIDOC Week celebrations is Unsung Heroes – Closing the Gap by Leading the Way.

Mary said, “It’s important to recognise the many Indigenous people who are working as volunteers behind the scenes as well as those in front line positions such as our armed forces, Police and Emergency Services”.

She also took the opportunity to commend the Australian Government for the Indigenous Cadetship Support initiative (ICS), which aims at improving professional employment prospects of Indigenous Australians.
