27 May – 3 June is National Reconciliation Week. The 2019 theme is ‘Grounded in Truth: Walk Together with Courage’.

Fostering strong and meaningful relationships, grounded in a foundation of truth and trust between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Aboriginal people, is at the heart of reconciliation.

At COORDINARE, we believe in reconciliation and actively seek to foster strong, two-way relationships with Aboriginal peoples and communities in South Eastern NSW. We also believe there is a role for all services, whether Aboriginal Community-Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs) or mainstream providers, to respectfully work together to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal people across the region.

We encourage everyone in the community to get involved in Reconciliation Week and attend an event in your region. You can find out more about Reconciliation Week on the Reconciliation Australia website.
