Our Vision for Reconciliation
Inspired by the gospel of reconciliation in Jesus Christ, Anglicare’s vision for reconciliation is a nation in which Australia’s First Peoples are restored in dignity, respect, empowerment and opportunity; where due honour and recognition is given to Australia’s First Peoples and where our organisation plays an ongoing role in healing and building positive relationships for all.
A Message from the CEO:
The Christian gospel and its message of reconciliation with God through Jesus Christ is at the heart of Anglicare Sydney (“Anglicare”) and what it is we seek to do for people in God’s grace. An important expression of the ministry of reconciliation we have been entrusted with is to seek practical ways to bring about real and lasting change in the way Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians recognise the injustices of the past and together chart a new way forward characterised by justice, dignity, opportunity and hope for all Australians. Anglicare’s Reconciliation Action Plan is an important way for us to set measurable goals and commit ourselves to achieving these outcomes with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
