As part of NAIDOC Week celebrations, Anglicare Australia has brought together Acknowledgements of Country from our Network across Australia.

Our hope is that this document will serve as a reminder of the richness and diversity of First Nations communities, made up of many different and distinct groups, each with their own culture, customs, language and laws. It will also highlight the breadth of our Network, and build understanding of First Nations cultures among our members.

Anglicare Australia has also launched our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan. Anglicare Australia's Executive Director Kasy Chambers said the Plan recognised the organisation's role in supporting change.

"As the Executive Director of Anglicare Australia, I’m proud to launch this Plan.

"As the peak organisation representing Anglican caring organisations around Australia, Anglicare Australia is well placed to grow partnerships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and organisations, the community sector, and government bodies and bureaucracies.

"This Plan outlines our strategy for implementing and measuring practical actions to build respectful relationships and for exploring opportunities for cultural learning and development across the Anglicare Australia Network.

"I look forward to working with our Network to delivering on this commitment", Ms Chambers said.
