ATSI STATEMENT OF COMMITTMENT
Wyong Neighbourhood Centre Inc. acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land in NSW and across Australia, and recognises their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures, and to Elders both past and present and acknowledge our youth, our future leaders.
Wyong Neighbourhood Centre Inc. acknowledges those regrettable circumstances that allowed Indigenous children to be forcibly removed from their families and we say "sorry".
We understand that the impacts of forced removal are still part of the lives of many Indigenous people today. We commit to allow Indigenous people to heal and understand that grieving will take time. We look forward to learning more about our shared heritage and encouraging goodwill between the culturally diverse families of Australia.
Wyong Neighbourhood Centre Inc. supports the vision of a united Australia respecting this land of ours, valuing the Indigenous heritage and providing justice and equity for all. Wyong Neighbourhood Centre Inc. commits to working with all Australians working together for a national Treaty or other instrument of reconciliation and the provision of culturally appropriate services and programs for all Australians.
