Our vision for reconciliation is to build a diverse and cohesive community that welcomes all its members and recognises the value that each member brings; an environment where staff, children and families feel a sense of belonging and strong connections with community and Country and where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s cultural identities are respected.
Our aim is to maintain our commitment to reconciliation so that we can facilitate change in the next generation. Developing awareness, knowledge and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories will benefit children from an early age.
To continue to strengthen the centres’ quest for further reconciliation, unity, equality and equity and historical acceptance, we have developed a reconciliation group with members of the centre and community who represent several different Aboriginal groups within Guyra, including youth, middle-aged community members, Elders, health department representatives and invested families of children we care for. This working group will continue to develop and implement ideas, strategies and goals to enhance further inclusion in our service of all cultures, celebrate and recognise cultures, traditions and histories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and ensure all children have equal and equitable opportunities for success.
