Today is National Sorry Day.
We remember and acknowledge the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were forcibly removed from their families and communities because of colonisation and racism.
At the WWC, we reflect on how we can learn about history and how we can make positive changes towards the healing of the generational trauma of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island community both on the individual and organisational level. We are deeply sorry for the ongoing pain experienced by the stolen generations.
We are in the process of consulting with Aboriginal consultants in creating the first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). We want to take this opportunity to commit to reconciliation and to improve the accessibility of our services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
