House with No Steps is committed to reconciliation. We are proud to have developed our Reconciliation Action Plan.
House with No Steps acknowledges the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay respect to them and their cultures, and to the elders past, present and emerging.
The journey towards reconciliation must start with acknowledgement of the suffering and human rights travesties of the past. These resulted in huge inequities in access to areas of health, education, employment, and – of particular note for House with No Steps – services that support people with a disability.
Reconciliation is the pathway to equity and equality where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples can stand as equals with other Australians: a path forged in friendship.
We are commitment to working together to transform the future.
Our Reconciliation Action Plan is a living document that outlines how we will contribute to reconciliation.
It challenges and supports all House with No Steps staff to make a positive difference to the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our communities.
The main goal of our Reconciliation Action Plan is to make Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures part of our everyday. This includes the way we develop our programs and deliver our services.
We are committed to equity and equality and will be guided in our work by our Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group, our broader networks, and our core organisational values.
