Guidestar joins Reconciliation Australia’s RAP Partner Statement of Support
Along with Reconciliation Australia and its RAP organisations Guidestar supports a Voice to Parliament and a “yes” vote in the Referendum.
As a provider of complex disability, mental health and psychology services, Guidestar’s work is focused on supporting people to improve their quality of life and reach their full potential. The people we work with tell us that they have experienced stigma, discrimination, and are often excluded from the simple things that many Australian’s take for granted.
We believe that the Voice to Parliament is important for self-determination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, in particular to improve mental health and wellbeing outcomes and provide a meaningful and lasting pathway to help inform policy and decisions that impact their lives.
Reconciliation is founded on respectful relationships and we urge all Australians to engage thoughtfully and respectfully as they educate themselves and others about this important opportunity to make our nation a stronger, fairer, better place for all.
