Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples die 10-17 years younger than other Australians and it's even worse in some parts of Australia. Register now and hold an activity of your choice in support of health equality across Australia.
We will continue to send the free resource packs out right up until National Close the Gap Day. If you have registered in the two weeks up to the event we cannot guarantee that you will receive your pack in time.
We have a range of free downloadable resources available on our website www.oxfam.org.au/closethegapday. It is still important to register as this contributes to the overall success of the event.
No matter how big or small your activity, yours will play an important role in building local support for ending the Indigenous health crisis. At a national level, registering your activity shows the broad ongoing community support for action to Close the Gap by 2030.
Remind governments of their responsibility to achieve health equality for all Australians. Your activity can be any size or shape you like.
Hosting an activity is really easy (and fun!)
A morning or afternoon tea at your workplace is one activity you could hold. An activity like this demonstrates your organisation’s core values and delivers a positive health message to its workforce and the sector in which you work. Watch this video to see how General Practice Victoria hosted a morning tea.
Schools at every level continue to be huge supporters of National Close the Gap Day (NCTGD). Watch how Nowra High School creatively included their whole school in their event, or find a range of ideas on how your school could get involved at the school resources page.
