On Tuesday, 5 July 2011 the Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, The Hon Jenny Macklin MP, and the Minister for the Arts, The Hon Simon Crean MP, asked the Committee to inquire into and report on language learning in Indigenous communities.

The Committee invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions addressing the terms of reference by Friday, 19 August 2011. Please refer to our brochure called preparing a submission for more information.

In order to facilitate electronic publishing of submissions, the Committee would prefer them to be emailed to atsia.reps@aph.gov.au or sent to the Committee Secretariat in Microsoft Word® or Portable Document Format (PDF).

The Committee welcomes information and comments about specific language projects in communities. Click below for a questionnaire about your group project.

Please note we are unable to provide financial assistance for projects, although based on the information we gather, the Committee may make general recommendations to the Government to assist language learning in Indigenous Communities.

Check it out and pass it around.
