Exciting corporate opportunities for Reconciliation and NAIDOC week
We were so proud to have launched our STRETCH Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2023-2025 last month. This is an important journey for all of us. You can find more information about our RAP and read the current STRETCH RAP here
The current STRETCH is Barnardos third RAP. We’ve achieved so much but there’s so much more to do. The important relationships we have built will inform this work.
National Reconciliation Week’s theme this month is to “Be a Voice for Generations,” emphasizing the need to empower the youth to work towards reconciliation.
At Barnardos Australia, we are committed to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families in their journey towards healing, which aligns with this year’s theme.
Reconciliation is crucial for corporate organizations to acknowledge and address the historical injustices experienced by Indigenous Australians. We invite corporate entities to connect with us to understand our Reconciliation Action Plan journey, and how we can work together to support their reconciliation activities throughout the year and during the upcoming National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) week, from July 2 to July 9, 2023.
We would love to hear from you, whether your team would be interested in organising a fun day out with the children, exploring ways of contributing to our early intervention and prevention programs, extending an invitation for the children to experience a day in your workplace, or hosting a company NAIDOC celebration to highlight the significance of reconciliation.
Let us collaborate and work together towards a more inclusive and equitable future for all Australians!
