The proposals for an Indigenous Voice would provide a way for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians to provide advice and input on matters that are important to improve their lives.

The proposals have been developed by the Indigenous Voice co-design groups and could be made up of two parts – Local and Regional Voices and a National Voice.

Local and Regional Voices would be community designed and led governance structures at a regional level. The National Voice would be a national body made up of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Public consultation and input is critical to ensure the best possible proposals are presented by the Indigenous Voice co-design groups in their final report to the Australian Government.

Now is the time to provide your feedback on the proposals at a consultation session or, you can find out more and complete a survey or submission at any time on the Indigenous Voice website.
