Notes:  Part of a presentation made at the Fourth National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers' Conference, Health Workers - Making a Difference, this paper provides a background to the Gordon Inquiry, an inquiry set up by the Western Australian Government in 2001 to investigate, inter alia, the circumstances surrounding the death of a young Aboriginal girl in State custody. The terms of reference and key findings of the inquiry with respect to child and/or sexual abuse in Indigenous communities are outlined and problems with the delivery of child protection services are highlighted. Concludes by emphasising the need for a coordinated, multi-agency response to the issue.
