Martin James Foundation
Orphanages and institutions don’t work, but many countries around the world still use them to meet the needs of vulnerable children. Often, large institutions are administered by few professionals who focus on the physical needs of a child rather than their emotional wellbeing. But studies show that the outcomes of children raised in institutional care are comparatively poorer than those raised in a supportive family environment.
Our inclusive organisational culture makes people feel respected and valued for who they are as an individual or group. Our leadership team can be trusted to drive innovation, collaboration and connection to maintain high levels of employee engagement for optimal service delivery. Inclusion is an organisational effort to ensure individuals of all backgrounds feel welcomed, and equally treated.
Reconciliation action plan
Key Assets established our first RAP in 2015 and as an organisation, we are encouraged by the progress we have made with this and subsequent RAPs. But we know we have a long way to go.
Key Assets recognises that reconciliation is not always a comfortable journey. It demands that together we confront the truth of the history of the oppression of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; to recognise that white Australia has a black history.
