Indigenous Commitment

Richmond Group acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first Australians. We acknowledge the impact of non-indigenous settlement to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and recognise the social, economic, and educational challenges faced by Indigenous Australians today.

We are committed to the implementation of practical actions to overcome the social, economic, and educational inequities experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

In partnership with communities and out employees, we will work to improve service delivery outcomes and support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We commit to ensuring mutually beneficial outcomes for communities by building and maintaining relationships at a local level.

We commit to increasing our employees’ understanding, knowledge, and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures through increased cultural sharing programs.

Richmond Group will:

  • Ensure cultural capability by recognising, promoting, and supporting a strong and positive view of Aboriginal and Torres Strait identity and culture.
  • Work in partnership with our employees to establish a workforce that reflects the communities in which we work and live.
  • Ensuring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people benefit from our work.
  • Create opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to develop their careers across the community services sector.
  • Build and model respect, understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures in delivery of internal and external services.
  • We pay our respects to all Indigenous elders’ past, present and emerging.
  • Celebrating the achievements and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
