Kevin Morgan - Aboriginal liaison officer, Department of Social Security

Kevin Morgan is appointed as the new Aboriginal liaison officer at the Department of Social Security at Charlestown. He says that “his job will be to improve relations between the Aboriginal community and the department. About 50% of the Aboriginal people in the area are unemployed.” He says that he will try to make sure they know what they are entitled to. He will try to set up training courses to teach Aboriginal people work skills and job interview presentation. He says “race relations are never any good without someone like myself to ease the situation” (Newcastle Herald, 2 August 1989)
