Reconciliation statement released
28 February 2019
To strengthen our commitment to reconciliation the Office of the Children’s Guardian has started work on a Reconciliation Action Plan.
The plan will outline how we engage in partnerships with the state’s diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. As part of this process, we have released a Reconciliation Statement.
This Reconciliation Statement affirms our commitment to do better for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities in NSW.
In our work, we recognise and promote connection to culture and identity as an important part of helping children and young people develop a sense of belonging and community. We recognise the significance that family and community play in providing children kinship ties and developing resilience. We also recognise the importance of ensuring equity to all who come in contact with the Office of the Children’s Guardian.
The Reconciliation Action Plan is due to be released in Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June).
