South Australia’s First Nations Voice to Parliament (the Voice) will be a representative, elected body for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Through the Voice, First Nations people can have their say at the highest levels of decision-making in South Australia, including to Parliament, on matters, policies and laws that affect them.

The Voice is an advisory body and will not have veto powers or decision-making powers in South Australia’s Parliament. It will allow the opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to raise community priorities in a public, transparent, and accountable way.
