Aboriginal acknowledgement

The Victorian Government acknowledges Victorian Aboriginal people as the First Peoples and Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land and water on which we rely. We acknowledge and respect that Aboriginal communities are steeped in traditions and customs built on a disciplined social and cultural order that has sustained 60,000 years of existence. We acknowledge the significant disruptions to social and cultural order and the ongoing hurt caused by colonisation.

Family Safety Victoria acknowledges the inherent strength of Aboriginal culture, recognises the wealth of experience that the Aboriginal community holds in partnering with clients and communities and is committed to promoting Aboriginal self-determination in The Orange Door.
