Our plan for reconciliation
For more than 40 years, Garden Village has provided homes, care and support for ageing Australians on the land of the Birpai people.
In embarking on this journey of reconciliation, Garden Village aims to improve outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people we care for as clients and consumers, those we employ or engage as volunteers, providers and partners, as well as in our broader community.
We understand that a proactive approach to reconciliation also brings about benefits for all people, including non- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
RAP Working Group
Our RAP implementation will be monitored and governed by our RAP Working Group (RWG). The RAP Champion is CEO Craig Wearne and the RAP Chair is Joanna McNamara Communications and Community Engagement Manager.
The journey of reconciliation fosters Allies to create a kinder and more inclusive Australia that benefits all Australians.
This supports our vision for an inclusive community where people have equitable access to high quality support and accommodation that meets their unique needs.
