First Nations Carers

Acknowledgement of Country

Carers SA acknowledges the traditional custodians of all the lands on which we meet, work and live. We recognise that this land has always been Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land and always will be.

We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past and present and recognise the cultural and linguistic strength, diversity and continual connection with the land, waters and community.

At Carers SA we acknowledge the history and current realities of First Nations people and understand our individual and collective responsibility towards creating inclusive, culturally safe services and programs for First Nations Carers.

At Carers SA we commit to learning from the knowledge, traditions, stories, spirituality and experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and Carers. 

Our Reconciliation Journey  

At Carers SA we are proud to commence our Reconciliation journey through the development of our first Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). 

Our RAP is our commitment to implementing goals and actions towards the reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people and communities.  

The Carers SA RAP ensures that reconciliation goes beyond words and policy and is a tangible way for us to ensure our services and practice is aligned with reconciliation.   

A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) requires Carers SA to sustainably and strategically take meaningful actions to advance reconciliation. Reconciliation is about how we will strengthen relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous people, for the benefit of all Australians, based on the five dimensions of Reconciliation (Reconciliation Australia).
