As an inclusive organisation, CS#1 respects relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and all other peoples in our community. We believe that reconciliation is an important step towards creating an inclusive and respectful community where people:
- Feel they belong, are valued and respected in communities that support them to achieve their outcomes.
- Have access to information, education and supports that empower them to have a strong voice, make informed decisions on issues that impact them, and participation in leadership opportunities advocating for their communities.
- Have access to services and support that empower them to live the life they want.
Through the Reflect RAP, CS#1 will actively contribute to building respect and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and facilitate equal opportunities for participation in our community, within our sphere of influence. We will do this through community engagement and partnerships; building new, and strengthening existing, relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and collaborating with organisations that can assist in achieving our reconciliation goals. We will do this through service design and delivery, human resources practices and workforce development.
