Summary
"The Australian Council of Social Service is Australia's best known community welfare policy and advocacy group. Yet it has rarely adopted a high profile on policy debates concerning Indigenous Australians. This paper provides a preliminary historical analysis of ACOSS's engagement with Indigenous issues. Using mainly primary sources such as ACOSS annual reports, journals and associated publications, this paper identifies the highpoints of ACOSS engagement with Indigenous concerns including the relatively recent formation of an Indigenous policy advisory group. It also suggests some reasons why ACOSS historically gave a low priority to Indigenous issues."
