NAIDOC Week 2024: Celebrating Culture, Acknowledging History, and Building a Brighter Future with Bharosa (NDIS)

NAIDOC Week

This NAIDOC Week, Bharosa Community Services, a dedicated NDIS provider, stands strongly with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which we operate and the ongoing fight for justice and equality. Besides, we believe that NAIDOC Week is a time for reflection, celebration, and recommitment to building a more inclusive future for all Australians.

NAIDOC Week: Celebrating Indigenous Culture and Achievements

NAIDOC Week is a significant annual observance in Australia, held from the first Sunday in July to the following Sunday. The acronym NAIDOC originally stood for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. However, it now represents the ongoing celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture, and achievements.

NAIDOC Week has its roots in the Day of Mourning, observed in 1938. It evolved into a week-long celebration in 1975, becoming a key time for Indigenous Australians to showcase their rich heritage and contributions to the nation.

NAIDOC Week extends beyond Indigenous communities. Government institutions, schools, local councils, and workplaces actively participate. Well, they also truly reflect the understanding and appreciation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture across Australia.

Standing with Our Participants: Culturally Sensitive NDIS Support

At Bharosa, we understand the unique challenges faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants with disabilities. Therefore we provide culturally sensitive NDIS support as per individual needs and respecting traditional practices. Our team also includes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander support workers who offer invaluable cultural understanding and connection.

Here’s how Bharosa supports participants from Aboriginal communities:

  • Culturally Sensitive Care: We prioritize understanding and respecting participants’ cultural beliefs, values, and traditions.
  • Community Connection: We strive to connect participants with their communities and cultural activities.
  • Land Connection: We acknowledge the deep spiritual connection many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have to the land and may incorporate land-based activities where appropriate.
  • Empowerment and Self-Determination: We support participants in setting their own goals and making decisions about their NDIS services.

Building a Brighter Future Together

NAIDOC Week provides an opportunity to recommit to a future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians have equal rights and opportunities. Bharosa believes in promoting collaboration and creating a more inclusive NDIS system that empowers individuals and communities to move forward in their life.

Here are some ways you too can contribute:

  • Learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories.
  • Support Indigenous businesses and organizations.
  • Advocate for justice and equality for all Australians.

Remember, Bharosa is all about empowering you to reach your full potential. Our team of experienced professionals and qualified support workers is passionate about helping disabilities reach their full potential. On the other hand, we understand the unique challenges faced by participants, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

Together, we can build a more respectful and inclusive future for all.
