  • Assisting Aboriginal communities to coordinate resources, employment and training through local language centres and committees.
  • Providing and maintaining a centre for resources and documentation of languages for the benefit of Victorian Aboriginal people.
  • Ensuring good governance and management practices within VACLs structure.
