NAIDOC Week 2nd – 9th July

July 2, 2017 - July 9, 2017

What is NAIDOC Week?

NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of Indigenous Australians.

We encourage all Australians to participate in the celebrations and activities that take place across the nation during NAIDOC Week.

Aboriginal-Flag

UMFC acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia as the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We acknowledge their culture is a living one, which relates to their ongoing connection to all things living and non-living on land, sea and sky. We pay our respect to their elders past and present. May our children of today lead us to a better tomorrow.

UMFC acknowledges the support of the Victorian and the Australian Governments

Commitment to Child Safety

All children and young people who access UMFC Services have a right to feel and be safe and to be treated with respect. We are committed to providing a welcoming and safe environment and working towards the best interests of children and young people at all times.
