This week we are celebrating National NAIDOC Week (July 3-10) to recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This is an opportunity for Centacare to highlight the work of our Aboriginal staff, and the many ways we support clients, cultural awareness, and inclusivity.

The theme for this year is Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! It calls on all of us to keep pushing for systemic change as we continue to rally around our mob, our Elders, and our communities.

It’s also a time to celebrate the many who have driven and led change in our communities over generations – they have been the heroes and champions of change, of equal rights and even basic human rights.
