Reconciliation is about unity and respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and non-Indigenous Australians. It is about respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage and valuing justice and equity for all Australians.
Womens Health and Family Services would like to take this opportunity to pledge our commitment and ongoing efforts to offer services that are culturally sensitive and appropriate. Womens Health and Family Services’ programs are open to all Western Australian women and their families with special consideration made for the unique needs of the Aboriginal Community. Improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health is not just about improving the physical wellbeing of an individual. It is about working toward the social, emotional and cultural wellbeing of the whole community in which each individual is able to achieve their full potential.
The principles of Respect, Culture, Relationships, and Opportunities are the basis of our Reconciliation Action Plan which will be available in the near future.
