National Reconciliation Week

Now More Than Ever, The Disability Trust supports National Reconciliation Week

The Disability Trust acknowledges the importance of National Reconciliation Week and embraces this year’s theme of Now More Than Ever.

National Reconciliation Week is from Monday 27 May to Monday 3 June, commemorating two significant milestones in Australia’s reconciliation journey, the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.

The theme for 2024 is “Now More Than Ever,” which is a perfect time to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The Disability Trust will continue to embrace our commitment to reconciliation as an extension of our ultimate purpose, to create an inclusive world where people are empowered to live the life they choose.

As an organisation, we are working to become the provider with the highest level of culturally informed inclusive support.

Now more than ever, the work continues. In treaty-making, in truth-telling, in understanding our history, in education, and in tackling racism.

We need connection. We need respect. We need action. And we need change.

Now more than ever, we need reconciliation.

If you need support, please contact 13YARN (phone 13 9276), which is a crisis support service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders where First Nations people can yarn without judgement in a confidential, culturally safe space about needs or concerns.
