to First Nations people – there is no one size fits all when it comes to reconciliation.


from their experiences to find out just how we can make the most impact. We must show a willingness to change – a willingness to make mistakes without judgment.


to admit we don’t have all the answers, though we know we have a small but meaningful role to play. We need to acknowledge our shared history, and the need to do better in the future.


and a desire to work together with First Nations people – including our staff, residents, clients, patients, local partners and other external parties

Working to strengthen our relationships with First Nations peoples

Our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan is a positive step towards developing real actions that build reconciliation.

Our vision for reconciliation acknowledges the rich history and culture of the First Nations peoples and their lands on which we care.

We acknowledge the valuable contribution of First Nations people to whom we’ll listen as we learn, building our understanding and awareness of First Nations history and culture.

It is only by taking these first steps that we can be true to our Mission and deliver care that is culturally safe, inclusive and informed: improving quality of life for people in need.

Balarinji Artwork

We partnered with Balarinji on a design for online and printed resources specific to First Nations people

The design Balarinji created is based on the artwork Spring Journey & Spirit Ancestors, and depicts the scorched earth under the sparse shade of desert scrub. The land drums a tribal beat. The design is about a journey through time.

For our RAP we commissioned artwork from one of our previous team members, Tanya Conlon

Tanya, a proud Ngarrindjeri woman, painted three special pieces of art that focus on the organisation and the journey of reconciliation: Knowledge Tree, The Journey and Dreamtime.
