Committees and Forums

Inner West Council participates in two main committees and forums for the purpose of consulting with its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities:

Leichhardt Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Consultative Committee (LATSICC)

Leichhardt Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Consultative Committee (LATSICC) was formally endorsed by Council in 2005.  LATSICC’s primary objectives are to:

  • discuss issues affecting people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background, and develop recommendations for consideration by Council;
  • assess access by people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds to Council's facilities and services, and recommend to Council for improving access;
  • learn more and better consult about the needs and current issues within the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community;
  • increase public awareness and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history;
  • involve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their advocates in Council's planning and decision-making process; and
  • develop its Reconciliation and NAIDOC Week activities.

Information about LATSICC Meetings can be found in the Committee section of the website.
