Plan for pos­i­tive change

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

EARLY par­ent­ing and child­hood ser­vices provider Ngala has launched its sec­ond Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Ac­tion Plan.

The launch was held at its Na­tional Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Week event, which cel­e­brated Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der culture.

About 50 guests at­tended, in­clud­ing El­ders, Ngala board mem­bers and staff and lo­cal gov­ern­ment and com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

The Aus­tralian, Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lands flags were raised.

“Fly­ing the Aus­tralian, Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der flags is a highly vis­i­ble way for Ngala to demon­strate re­spect for First Na­tions peo­ples and our com­mit­ment to rec­on­cil­i­a­tion,” Ngala chief ex­ec­u­tive Ash­ley Reid said.

“In Ngala’s 2016-18 Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Ac­tion Plan, the pri­or­ity is strength­en­ing our re­la­tion­ships, es­pe­cially with Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der com­mu­nity mem­bers and or­gan­i­sa­tions, to achieve real, mean­ing­ful and sus­tained change.

“Build­ing these re­la­tion­ships will in­crease re­spect and un­der­stand­ing and cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for Ngala to con­tinue work­ing in part­ner­ship with Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der peo­ples.”

Ngala has launched its sec­ond Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Ac­tion Plan.
