Aboriginal Affairs, NSW Department of Education, have contracted the Social Policy Research Centre (UNSW Australia) to conduct an evaluation of OCHRE, the community-focused plan for Aboriginal affairs in NSW. This will involve case studies of eight projects operating as part of OCHRE. The objective of the evaluation is to provide evidence to improve the effectiveness of OCHRE projects and outcomes into the future, and inform the NSW Government about any possible future expansion of OCHRE.
