Nidjalla Waangan Mia held a morning tea to acknowledge and celebrate National Reconciliation Week. George Walley, conducted a special smoking ceremony in the NIdjalla courtyard and recounted a story about how reconciliation is more than just a word.
Guests included Nidjalla clients & staff, representatives from the City of Mandurah and the Peel Health Campus. It was a great celebration and a reminder that reconciliation is more than a word and for us, it is something that we work on every day. It is not a once year gesture.
As an organisation we are working towards a RAP which will lead to mutual trust, respect and understanding between local communities and GP down south that results in continual and successful action to address local inequalities in the health status and life expectancy of Indigenous people.
GP down south is an exemplary not-for-profit community organisation. We have been providing health and wellbeing services in the Peel regions and the South West of WA since 1994.
