Celebrating Reconciliation Week

A Tree of Truth was planted as a representation of the community that we can grow into: it acknowledges our history, learn from it and move forward.

Carinity acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community.  We thank the Bindal and Wulgurukaba people whose land we play and learn on all day.  We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging and are committed to reconciliation amongst all Australians.
