Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People

Andrew believes that all Australians should enjoy equal access to government support and services. The implementation of these services should be collegial and in full consultation with the relevant community so that they are delivered in a culturally appropriate and relevant way, rather than in the paternalistic manner that is too often government practise.

Andrew supports constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people provided that it is substantive and fully supported by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. Andrew is pleased that Bill Shorten has opened up the discussion about how colonisation of Australia was an invasion, and hopes that the Turnbull Government will offer similar recognition.
