National Reconciliation Week is a time for us to learn about our history and culture, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. What does reconciliation mean? Sancia shares what reconciliation means to them - have a read here. And Zoe shares her thoughts here too.
At ReachOut we are committed to reconciliation and our vision is for an inclusive, compassionate, cohesive Australia that truly embraces its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. We’re committed to working in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to deliver an inclusive service that meets their needs and contributes to improved mental health and wellbeing outcomes. As part of this commitment, we want all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to reach their full potential as emerging elders.
Our third Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan, endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, embeds reconciliation into the whole organisations’ business-as-usual, increasing the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people and parents/carers across our services, and continuing to build cultural competency within the organisation.
Our goal is to empower each and every team member in their reconciliation journey to build a sense of shared responsibility as we move forward.
