Multicultural Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of all lands on which we meet, work, and live, and recognise that this land has always been and will always be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land. Multicultural Australia respects and values Australia’s First Nations peoples’ enormous resilience, courage, determination, and often unrecognised contributions to this country’s social and economic development. We walk together in solidarity in the shared pain of the past and with shared hope for the future.
We recognise that First Nations people often face unique barriers to accessing services and support that meets their needs. In our work we strive to adopt a holistic and person-centred approach to wellbeing, empower our First Nations clients, and incorporate an understanding of culture and tradition, as well as the impact of colonisation and its ongoing effects. Language and attitudes that are discriminatory towards First Nations people are not tolerated within our organisation.
Reconciliation and Solidarity Working Group
Multicultural Australia’s Reconciliation and Solidarity Working Group coordinates an ongoing organisation-wide journey towards reflecting inclusion, opportunity, awareness, and understanding of First Nations history, stories, experiences, and perspectives in our personal, professional, and organisational practice, and in our work with partners and communities, across all First Nations countries and cultures we inhabit and engage with.
