Our commitment to the Traditional Custodians
Gidget Foundation Australia acknowledges and pays respect to the First Nations People, the traditional custodians, past, present and emerging of the lands, seas and skies. Gidget Foundation Australia values diversity and is committed to providing an inclusive service for all people.
To mark our 20th anniversary since inception, Gidget Foundation Australia embarked on a cultural awareness program to ensure that every aspect of our organisation and our supportive treatment services are both diverse and inclusive in nature.
All of our Clinicians are encouraged to be culturally competent, and we have a regular Working Group dedicated to the advancement of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
In 2021 we commissioned renowned Aboriginal artist and proud Yuin woman, Rheanna Lotter, to create an adaptation of our imperfect gerbera logo. This artwork is representative of our organisation and is titled, We All Belong.
