National Reconciliation Week
A time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements.
National reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
National Reconciliation Week which takes place between 27 May – 3 June, aims to promote mutual respect, trust, and relationships between the nation’s First peoples and those who now call Australia home.
The theme of National Reconciliation Week this year is “Be Brave. Make Change.” This challenges all Australians; individuals, families, communities, organisations, and the government, to ‘Be Brave’ and work on the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can ‘Make Change’ for the benefit of all Australians.
At Key Assets we acknowledge and celebrate our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, histories, cultures, and values. We help children and young people to stay connected with their culture and work with carers to maintain their cultural identity. Our cultural practice leaders and supporting key care teams are a testament to this.
We are being led by people and organisations in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, and we work alongside and in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders, agencies, and community members. Our hope is to be part of reconciliation that includes all of Australia and see members of all communities commit to their own reconciliation journey.
The journey of Reconciliation is one that doesn’t happen overnight. We all have a role to play in creating a fairer and more just Australia for everyone. So ‘Be Brave’ and do your part to help ‘Make Change’ this reconciliation week.
