This year we will commemorate the National Apology to the Stolen Generations by sharing stories that have been shared with us over the years.
Witnessing the stories of Stolen Generation members who were removed from their homes and communities allows all Australians to join in on the healing journey and be part of the solution moving forward. This is the spirit of commemorating the National Apology.
This year, we also want to highlight the recent findings in the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Stolen Generations aged 50 and over report. This report illustrates the current disadvantages that Stolen Generation members in their aging years are currently living with.
As well as commemorating the Apology, we want also to create awareness of the need for more trauma-informed resources and culturally appropriate aged care, to ensure we are caring for Stolen Generations with the support they deserve and need.
