Statement of Apology
Community Child Care Co-operative NSW acknowledges the loss of family, cultural identity, land, language and community of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders through the policies and practices of Australian governments, organisations and people.
We acknowledge the findings and support the recommendations of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Report Bringing Them Home (1997).
We unreservedly apologise for the ongoing suffering and loss that these policies and practices have caused to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, parents, families and communities.
