The Aboriginal Child Sexual Assault Taskforce report of July 2006 highlighted concerns that child sexual assault in Aboriginal communities is widespread and widely underreported. The five year plan set out in this document provides for a whole of government response to this problem and related aspects of Indigenous disadvantage such as substance abuse, social and economic disadvantage, poor mental and physical health, and family violence. The plan proposes that the New South Wales Government works with Indigenous communities in coordinating service delivery and improving service responses, particularly in regional and remote areas.
