Our commitment to Reconciliation

Access Health and Community is committed to reconciliation.

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) runs from Saturday 27 May to Saturday 3 June. The week acknowledges two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively. At AccessHC, we work to play our part in collectively building relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures and futures.

What can you do during this time?

Join an event

Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung Cultural Awareness workshop by Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre is an event where you can increase your awareness of local Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung culture. Learn about the history and heritage of Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people and gain a deeper appreciation of connection to Country.  Find out more online

Unfinished Business is an exhibition that reveals the stories of 30 First Nations people with disability. Their deeply personal stories are complex and intertwined with Australia’s political and social history, which has resulted in today’s unacceptably high rates of disability in Australia’s First Nations communities. Find out more online.

A series of events are held by Reconciliation Victoria, including the Be a Voice for Generations Breakfast located in Ivanhoe. This event brings together reconciliation supporters and champions to hear about the importance of voting YES in the Voice to Parliament referendum and reflect on this year’s NRW theme. Special guest speaker, Aunty Jill Gallagher AO will be joining the event. View the full list of events online.
