Social Futures have established our first RAP Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Advisory Panel. We are still accepting applications from interested community members.
Social Futures works to create positive social change in strong communities where people thrive. We believe that reconciliation is everyone’s business.
At Social Futures, a significant proportion of our participants identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and require us to be culturally aware and competent. Our staff overwhelmingly support reconciliation. Social Futures wants to be clear about contributing to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and being tangible and accountable to our goals and achievements.
Can you help inform our way?
Social Futures supports children, young people, families & communities to live their best lives. We care about the people we work with and we are learning together, but we know we don’t always get it right.
We recognise more needs to be done to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to heal from past injustice and inequality. As a service provider in your community, we recognise that we have a part to play and we want to do it well, alongside community as a two way learning journey.
Advisory Panels meetings commenced in 2022.
