St Vincent de Paul Society NSW is honoured to be adding a strong voice to reconciliation in our nation with this Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
Our vision for reconciliation is for a just and equitable society. A society characterised by strong and meaningful relationships between the First Peoples of Australia and non-Indigenous Australians. A society in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures, histories, knowledges and connections to country are valued and celebrated.
The role of Bulbulwul Baya is to support the St Vincent de Paul Society NSW to work cooperatively with First Nation peoples, communities and organisations towards a just and equitable society.
Cultural protocols describe the historical and current customs, tradition and accepted codes of behaviour of a specific cultural group. These protocols are present in all cultures and are an important part of ensuring people interact and conduct their behaviour in an appropriate and respectful manner.
These Guiding Principles, including the Society’s Community Engagement Plan, adds to a raft of initiatives that have been designed to inform, support and guide our people across the Society on how to embed cultural awareness and understanding into everyday work practices.
