Former Labor senator Nova Peris has scored a role with the Victorian government to find ways to encourage Aboriginal children to play sport.

The Herald Sun reports Ms Peris, the first indigenous Australian to win a gold medal, has signed a one-year contract.

Her role will be to develop a plan to boost the participation of Aboriginal youths in sport and recreation in Victoria.

Ms Peris quit federal politics in May to spend more time with her family.
