Last week, Lifestart staff attended a number of events during NAIDOC Week (July 7-14) to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
One such event was the NAIDOC Family Fun Day at Balcombe Heights Estate, where staff provided families and carers with information about the services we offer to children and young people living with disability.
Lex Dadd performed the welcome to country and smoking ceremony (pictured) to kick-start the day and bless everyone who attended.
Lifestart is currently in the process of developing its Innovate Reconciliation Plan, which will further our commitment to developing and strengthening relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, engaging staff and stakeholders in reconciliation, and developing and piloting innovative strategies to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
