Coledale Community Centre joins efforts to Close the Gap

Coledale Community Centre will join hundreds of other organisations across the nation, in calling for an end to the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians, with an event on Thursday 15th March 2018 at the Coledale Community Centre. Kicking off at 10.00am.

Attendees at the event will be among tens of thousands of Australians taking part in activities on and around Thursday 15th March to mark the annual National Close the Gap Day for 2018.

Now in its second decade, the Close the Gap campaign is Australia’s largest campaign to close the gap on life expectancy and urges governments to take action to achieve health equality between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians by 2030.

The aim of the Coledale event would draw attention to how local actions could drive lasting change and the Close the Gap event is to bring the community of Coledale / Tamworth together to tell the Government we want the Indigenous life expectancy gap closed once and for all. Those in power must make sure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People are at the core of decision-making about their own health needs, and recognise that those within these communities have the solutions.

Our leaders still need to step up to do more nationally to help, and we can still achieve a lot locally, especially by keeping the pressure on politicians to make real, lasting change.

We invite the whole of community to come join us, and thousands of others across Australia, in our efforts to Close the Gap!
