The First Nations Peoples Strategic Advisory Group

The First Nations Peoples Strategic Advisory Group (FNPSAG) has been set up to support the Royal Commission in its work by providing leadership and guidance on matters specific to First Nations peoples with disability. FNPSAG is chaired by Commissioner Andrea Mason and co-chaired by Commissioner Roslyn Atkinson.

The FNPSAG is an advisory group, not a decision-making body, and it has its own Terms of Reference. The outcomes of each meeting are distributed via our fortnightly eNewsletter Connect.

  • 2 March 2020
  • 19 June 2020
  • 18 September 2020
