National Sorry Day is a significant Australia-wide observance held on May 26 each year.
It is a day we remember and commemorate members of the Stolen Generation. Stolen generations refer to Indigenous Australians who were forcibly removed from their families and communities.
We respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
We acknowledge that Aboriginal people are our nation’s first people and we recognise our shared history.
We understand that this history continues to have an impact on current health outcomes.
Today we reaffirm our commitment to provide a supportive, respectful and welcoming environment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
