Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples
Jul 22, 2019, 12:00 PM
Anglicare Australia recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples of this country and acknowledges the continued spiritual, physical, social & cultural connections they have with land and sea, sustained over 60,000 years. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the experts in designing, implementing and evaluating effective and culturally safe systems and agencies, to address the lasting impact of colonisation. We recognise colonisation has left and continues to leave a legacy of violence, family separation, loss of culture, language and country. In working for Reconciliation, Anglicare Australia advocates for self-determination and justice as inherent rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
