VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

To be Western Australia’s leading service for children and families, that promotes the rights of First Peoples, by acknowledging, supporting and empowering all communities to build mutual respect, trust and meaningful connections.  

Reconciliation is about unity and respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians. It is about respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage and valuing justice and equity for all Australians.

Meerilinga acknowledges the diversity and unique position of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of mainland Australia and the islands of the Torres Strait. In accordance with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Lores and customs, connection to Country sustains contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, languages, arts, and spiritualties, despite the historical and ongoing impact of the political, social and economic process of colonisation on the lives and futures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Reconciliation, in practice, is a shared responsibility requiring commitment to a whole-of-organisation approach and active engagement with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, the need to raise awareness, and to challenge and educate our staff and community regarding the histories, cultures and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
