his paper presents the Australian Council of Social Service's (ACOSS) vision for reconciliation.


ACOSS’ commitment to reconciliation has been demonstrated over many years through mutually respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and people, joint campaigns and problem solving on complex issues, and a deep respect within ACOSS for the unique contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to Australia and recognition of past and current injustices and disadvantage.

ACOSS can advocate for and promote reconciliation within our membership, the health and community services sector, and the broader community by formally demonstrating reconciliation in our attitudes, structures,  policies and peak body activities. We have the desire and capacity to turn good intentions into action.
