Monash Council is committed to creating a culturally safe environment for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across our services, within our municipal buildings, facilities and areas and across staff communication.
We are developing a Reconciliation Action Plan that works to create a culturally safe Monash, in which the diverse and unique identities and experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people are respected and valued.
We are committed to helping our staff develop the skills, knowledge and cultural sensitivity that is required to foster a culturally safe environment. We do this by recognising the strengths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, and the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children's wellbeing and safety.
It is expected that Monash Council staff are inclusive and supportive, and will encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to participate and express their culture in all council-led activities.
