Message from the Guardian: Reconciliation in 2024

As we move from National Sorry Day into Reconciliation Week, now is the time to call out the ongoing impacts of the stolen generations and the racially discriminatory child removal practices we still see today. Whilst the work of many in driving progress does not go unnoticed, the harsh reality is that generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are still removed from their family and culture, more so than ever before.

For National Volunteer Week – let’s say thanks to the kids!

National Volunteer Week happens each year, as an opportunity to recognise the diverse passions and talents that each person brings to volunteering.

This years’ theme for National Volunteer Week – ‘Something for Everyone’ – is an invitation to explore the myriad of opportunities available, emphasising that there’s a place for everyone in the world of volunteering!
