Our Vision for Reconciliation

Our vision for reconciliation is a society that values the cultures and heritage of our First Nations Peoples, respects the land and waters, and provides justice and equity to all Australians.

To help achieve this, Communicare aims to embed the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples into every part of our organisation. From service delivery to our strategic direction, we must consider the needs, history, and culture of our First Nations peoples.

While it is the responsibility of every Communicare employee, Board Member, volunteer and student to promote respectful and unified relationships with our First Nations peoples, we are led by our Director Aboriginal Strategy and Capacity Building, Alira Kelly. Alira Kelly is a proud Yamatji woman, who was raised Noongar Boodjar land and brings with her a strong passion for supporting Aboriginal communities and an extensive background working with youth in the justice system and child protection.

It is imperative that on our path towards reconciliation we acknowledge the truth and injustices of the past. Not to dwell but to forgive, to heal and to educate, so that as one nation we can move forward to end the divide between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

– Jade Adams, Board Director and descendent of the Yadhiagana/Wuthathi peoples.


Our Reconciliation Action Plan

I look forward to continuing the work of embedding Communicare’s RAP aspirations across all areas of our work, with a focus on creating futures for some of Western Australia’s most vulnerable people.

– Alira Kelly, Director Aboriginal Strategy and Capacity Building

Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) demonstrates our commitment to working to help promote, facilitate and contribute to reconciliation between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It seeks to improve our everyday operations to be more inclusive and supportive of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures.
