We are committed to ensuring that we are an organisation that is culturally safe, respectful and welcoming of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Justice Connect recognises the richness and depth of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, the custodianship of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples over the world’s oldest surviving cultures, and the strength and resilience that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have shown in the centuries since European occupation.
We also acknowledge the deep value that participation in the reconciliation journey brings to all Australians.
We acknowledge that we work and live on stolen land, in a country whose sovereignty was never ceded. We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of that land, and their elders past, present and emerging.
This is our Reconciliation Action Plan, and we are committed to meeting the targets we have set ourselves.

“We didn’t want to focus on all that other stuff that takes us away from helping people. We wanted to focus on our core business. And Justice Connect helped us to do that.”
