A new community-led Action Plan promises to strengthen communities and improve educational and employment outcomes for Victorians of African heritage.
Launched by the State Government last week, the Victorian African Community Action Plan is aimed at supporting Victorian Africans to reach their full potential across all aspects of their Australian life experiences and proposes 250 actions across the six focus areas of business, employment, education and training, health and wellbeing, inclusion and empowerment and leadership, cohesion and connection.
It aims to grow African business activity by promoting African Victorian innovation, enterprise and investment across the economy and will attempt to lift the social, emotional and physical wellbeing of all people and “support people to be equal, treated fairly and with respect”.
The Action Plan proposes to implement these actions using a partnership approach, ensuring communities can contribute their expertise, experience and knowledge to own, lead and be part of solutions.
