The National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples is a national voice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

As a company the Congress is owned and controlled by its membership and is independent of Government. Together we will be leaders and advocates for recognising our status and rights as First Nations Peoples in Australia.

This week, Congress co-ordinated the National Indigenous Housing Workshop in Adelaide. The workshop was attended by over 60 people, including representatives from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing organisations from across Australia. Minister for Indigenous Affairs Nigel Scullion was also present to open the workshop and take questions.

An agreement was carried calling for the establishment of a National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing body, with two representatives from each state and territory and two representatives from the Torres Strait.

Congress greatly appreciates the participation of all attendees, and looks forward to continuing to work to improve housing for our people.
