Our vision for Reconciliation is to walk alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in a respectful and meaningful way that highlights the wisdom, strength and resilience of the world’s oldest living culture.

Indigenous employment is deeply embedded in our vision, and we are committed to providing a culturally rich, empowering, and safe environment for all our people. 

We believe that by working together, we’re stronger and can achieve more than working alone. If you are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, we would love for you to consider a career with us. 

Let’s walk this journey together.

In the work she does, the welfare of children is central. But for a child to be looked after, their parent or carer needs to be supported too. Lillian says that the ability to grow trust and connection is a non-negotiable attribute in her role.
