Aboriginal Development Officers (ADO’s) support CHSP and HACC-PYP staff and organisations to improve access to services for Aboriginal people through culturally responsive services. ADOs also support Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCO’s) to provide services in their communities. The ADO role includes:
- coordinating regular Loddon Mallee/Hume Regional Aboriginal Network meetings for CHSP and HACC-PYP Aboriginal service providers and facilitating communication between the network and state-wide Victorian Committee for Aboriginal Aged Care and Disability (VCAACD).
- supporting the development of partnerships between ACCOs and mainstream CHSP and HACC-PYP providers.

RECONCILIATION WEEK 27th May – 3rd June, 2021
As we head toward Reconciliation Week, I really look forward to seeing some of you out and about at events across the Region. Please take some time to find out activities happening in your town and make every effort to catch up with your Local Aboriginal Community. Or even better, plan a morning tea and invite a local Elder to speak.
This year’s theme More than a word, Reconciliation takes action, seems very fitting as it’s our 20th Year of Reconciliation Australia, and there are so many of our organisations working on or toward, Reconciliation Action Plans.
I hope you think about Reconciliation, not just in your workplace, but as an individual and at home with your family.
Vicki Walker, Aboriginal Development Officer (Loddon Mallee & Hume)
