Today marks the start of National Reconciliation Week 2023.
The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023, Be a Voice for Generations, urges all Australians to use their power, their words, and their actions to create a more just, equitable and reconciled country for all.
At Southern Cross Care (WA) we know our country’s past cannot be reversed, but we are committed to walking together with our First Nations residents, clients and staff to create a more inclusive future for all.
We embrace the stories shared by elders in our care and prioritise the perspectives of our First Nations residents and clients.
This National Reconciliation Week we reflect on our journey so far and what work still needs to be done to incorporate more First Nations voices into the care and services we provide.
We encourage everyone to join us in reflecting on our shared responsibility of reconciliation, respect and understanding, and how we can contribute to this in our everyday lives.
