Respecting Indigenous Australians

Awareness, understanding and actions

Family Life participates in the local Indigenous Action Network for Frankston and Mornington Peninsula where we consult with elders and service partners. In doing so, we are able to grow our awareness and understanding, and inform our actions for strengthening relationships with indigenous families.

Family Life’s Indigenous acknowledgement announced at the beginning of all official Family Life meetings:

‘Family Life, and all the individuals who make up our organisation respectfully acknowledge all Aboriginal people and their ancient and ongoing connections to culture and country. In particular we wish to acknowledge the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung-Wurundjeri people of the larger Kulin nation in whose ancestral lands Family Life provides services to the Melbourne Community.’
