Southcare’s vision for reconciliation is to progressively increase our knowledge and connections with Aboriginal people, their culture and social concerns so as to contribute to a culturally safe environment which openly acknowledges the rights, views and expectations of Aboriginal people.

This vision is aligned with Southcare’s Service Approach to value diversity, equality and difference.

Southcare is committed to working collaboratively, and in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities in a spirit of respect, co-operation, reconciliation and service. This commitment is to staff, clients and the local and broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Southcare acknowledges the significant social, educational, political, economic and health disadvantage suffered by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people since Settlement. Southcare’s is committed to working in partnership with Aboriginal people so that personally and as communities we can thrive together.
