National Reconciliation Week

Listening to support reconciliation

National Reconciliation Week – 27 May to 3 June – is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023 is Be a Voice for Generations. The theme encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work and socialise.

Health Infrastructure formalised its commitment to reconciliation with the launch of its Reconciliation Australia endorsed Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan in February 2023.   

This commitment acknowledges our opportunity to listen to and learn from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders, partners, and community members as we plan and design culturally safe health facilities across NSW.  

The Blayney MPS Redevelopment project team works closely with local Wiradjuri knowledge-holders through regular design sessions.

As a result of this consultation, the new Blayney MPS will include features to ensure everyone feels comfortable, safe, and has the environment to heal, including wayfinding in Wiradjuri language, the integration of Indigenous artwork, and culturally appropriate spaces inside and outside.
