Our Commitment to Reconciliation
Empowered Community Services acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of Australia as the nation’s first people and recognises that as the traditional custodians of the land have a cultural and a spiritual relationship with their traditional lands and waters.
Empowered recognises the custodianship of the land in which we operate as the traditional country of the Awabakal, Worrimi & Kuring- gai peoples and pay our respects to Aboriginal Elders, past, present and emerging.
Our journey toward reconciliation begins with acknowledging Australia’s colonial history and the devastating effects that it had on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
