CLOSING THE GAP ON birth certificates How would your life be if you weren’t allowed to access education, vote or obtain a driver’s licence, job, bank account or passport? Chances are, it’d be different, but for more than 500,000 Australians who don’t have birth certificates, this is their reality. Most of them are Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders. That’s where Pathfinders National Aboriginal Birth Certificate program comes in. The NABC program provides free birth certificates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders aged 21 years and younger through email applications and outreach support in identified areas where there are significant numbers of Aboriginal people who don’t have registered births or birth certificates. The NABC team has travelled through NSW, QLD and VIC, visiting more than 35 Statistical Divisions to conduct birth certificate and registration sign-up days. Volunteers and partnering organisations assist with various tasks on sign-up days, from providing local

transportation to helping applicants fill out forms. To date, the two-year-old program has assisted more than 5,100 people gain access to their birth certificates. More than 84 percent of these applicants wanted their birth certificates to access education and employment. Closing the gap on birth registrations and certificates is no cheap feat, but it’s worth is tenfold when you help someone access important services and resources they couldn’t access before.
