OCHRE is the NSW Government plan for Aboriginal affairs. It stands for opportunity, choice, healing, responsibility, empowerment and is symbolic of Aboriginal communities’ deep connection with Country.
OCHRE is a response to recommendations of the Ministerial Taskforce on Aboriginal Affairs, the NSW Auditor General and NSW Ombudsman.
The Taskforce was made up of seven Ministers, four Aboriginal community leaders and senior public servants. It looked at how to improve outcomes for Aboriginal people in education and employment, service delivery and accountability.
The Taskforce undertook comprehensive consultations last year and received feedback from some 2,700 people across NSW.
This plan is less about Government and more about Aboriginal people. To achieve our aims, OCHRE outlines a number of initiatives including: Connected Communities, Language and Culture Nests, Opportunity Hubs, a Local Decision Making model and an independent Aboriginal Council chaired by a Coordinator General.
