Support for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice

27 Sep, 2023

InsideOut Institute for Eating Disorders is proud to unanimously support the establishment of an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament with a YES vote on 14 October 2023.  

To address health, educational and social inequities requires giving First Nations peoples an opportunity to have a say when decisions are being made about their lives.  

We have an opportunity to change the status quo when it comes to research, and to rectify an absence that has always been present.  

As a national institute for research, translation, and clinical excellence we are committed to ensuring every person has access to the best possible care.  

InsideOut Institute believes and firmly supports the view that the Voice to Parliament will give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities a means to inform and guide policy and legislation that affects them, their lives and wellbeing, reducing inequality and improving mental and physical health.  

InsideOut Institute supports a YES vote.
