Acknowledgement of Country

We, the Department of Human Services (DHS), acknowledge and respect Aboriginal peoples as South Australia’s First Peoples and the Traditional Owners and occupants of the lands and waters of South Australia. We respect and celebrate the varied cultural and spiritual identities of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have the right to live free from discrimination of any kind, and to exercise and enjoy their rights to family and culture in accordance with the principles of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

We are committed to ensuring that the voices, aspirations and needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are reflected in our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and will work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to develop, monitor and evaluate deliverable actions.
