Acknowledgement of Country
We acknowledge and pay respects to Elders, past and present, who have given us time, knowledge, and guidance. We appreciate the rich contribution and resilience that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and youth provide to WSCLC Limited and the community.
WSCLC Limited continues to work together with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, and our non-Aboriginal staff, to better our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and the ongoing connection to the land, waters, and seas. We are committed to creating a genuine appreciation for the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their contribution to the workplace and community, and in turn, we are working towards reconciliation. Always was, always will be Aboriginal Land.
The Stolen Generations Reparations Scheme
The Stolen Generations Reparations Scheme provides one-off ex gratia payments of $75,000 to living Stolen Generations survivors. There is also a separate payment for the funeral fund of $7000.
Our Aboriginal Legal Access Program (ALAP) is currently offering FREE legal advice and community legal education sessions on the Stolen Generations Reparation Scheme. We are available to help Aboriginal and / or Torres Strait Islander clients understand the scheme, and apply for payments.
Importantly, the last date to apply is 30 June 2022.
