Reconciliation

Ngala kaaditj Wadjuk moort keyen kaadak nidja boodja - We acknowledge Noongar people as the original custodians of the land on which our office sits.

The WA AIDS Council has a strong connection to the values of reconciliation and a desire to be a part of this process.

The WA AIDS Council have committed to the ongoing development of our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples represent a priority population in strategies to achieve our mission and have a strong commitment to improving the health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia.

Internally, the WA AIDS Council has been fortunate to have Andrew Burry, our CEO as a champion from the beginning of this process as well as the WA AIDS Council Board.

Additionally, all WA AIDS Council staff have been supportive and shown great interest in seeing The WA AIDS Council RAP come to fruition.

We have a working group which meets regularly to discuss the progress of our RAP which focuses on the three pillars of reconciliation – Relationships, Respect and Opportunities.

Ngalang News is a newsletter produced by the WA AIDS Council RAP Working Group offering the latest news on our journey towards reconciliation.

The Council acknowledges the Whadjuk Nyungar people as the traditional owners of the land on which we operate.
