First Nations People & Volunteering

We are committed to an on-going process of reconciliation, acknowledging the historical and continued impact of colonisation and systemic racism on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People. We are dedicated to building an organisation that prioritises the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People, and respects their histories and cultures. We aim to be inclusive of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People within our organisation and the volunteering community.
