This week is NAIDOC Week – an opportunity to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their role as traditional owners and custodians of the land upon which we live and work.
Australian history doesn’t begin with the arrival of the first white people. Indigenous people have lived and cared for this country continuously for over 65,000 years. We wish to make acknowledgement of this fact.
We are very proud of the HSU’s expanding efforts to support members working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Services, as well as indigenous members working in other areas of our health system.
Members are reminded of the HSU Indigenous Development Fund, which was established to contribute to organisations that enable projects that benefit Indigenous communities. The HSU Indigenous Development Committee may grant funding between $2,000 and up to $10,000 for the implementation of a community-based project.
To apply for this funding, or for more information, please see the application form at this link. Applications close at COB Monday 30th November 2020.
