In July 2020, VACCA submitted a paper to the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee Inquiry into the Victorian Governments Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Our submission is based on staff consultations and deep dives across our many programs in the justice, intensive family services, therapeutic family violence and homelessness space. In responding to COVID-19, we have seen the incredible strength of ACCO collaboration and local networks.

The under-representation of COVID-19 cases amongst Aboriginal communities is a testament to our self-determined response and deep care for community and one another.
