Statement of Apology

Homelessness NSW acknowledges those regrettableĀ circumstances that allowed Indigenous children to be forcibly removed from their families and we say "sorry".

We understand that the impacts of forced removal are still part of the lives of many Indigenous people today. We commit to allow Indigenous people to heal and understand that grieving will take time. We look forward to learning more about our shared heritage and encouraging goodwill between the culturally diverse families of Australia.

Homelessness NSW supports the vision of a united Australia respecting this land of ours, valuing the Indigenous heritage and providing justice and equity for all, all Australians working together for a national Treaty or other instrument of reconciliation and the provision of culturally appropriate services and programs for all Australians.
