Aboriginal authorities to have seat at SA policy table

AN AUSTRALIAN-first agreement will deliver South Australian Aboriginals a seat at the table when government agencies design policies.

The Far West Coast Aboriginal Corporation, Ngarrindjeri Regional Authority and Adnyamathanha Traditional Lands Association have each been recognised as an Aboriginal Regional Authority.

The recognition means the groups will be part of designing policies and service delivery for indigenous people in their regions.

SA Aboriginal Affairs Minister Kyam Maher said the plan was designed to lead to better outcomes for Aboriginal people.

"Aboriginal people will be more involved in the decisions that affect their lives," he said.

"When Aboriginal people are more involved in the decisions that affect them, better policy and service delivery outcomes happen."

Each authority will receive $100,000 for administrative costs.
