We acknowledge, respect, and celebrate First Nations Peoples and recognise that they are the Traditional Owners of the Country, which our residents, clients and our fellow team members now call home.
Southern Cross Care NSW & ACT is embarking on a significant journey of Reconciliation by working to create a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) with the guidance of Aboriginal Leader and Wakka Wakka woman Brooke Prentis. This will provide a strategic, long-term framework for us to take meaningful and lasting action to advance Reconciliation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We are currently in the first stage of the RAP process known as ‘Reflect’. We will focus on scoping Reconciliation activities across the core pillars of Relationships, Respect, Opportunities and Governance.
Our HEART values of empathy, acceptance, and respect are at the core of this journey. We empathise with past injustices, accept that we all have an important role in Reconciliation, and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, including their stories, histories, and cultures. We look forward to sharing further details along our Reconciliation journey.
