CASPA continues to reflect on the contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people make to our great nation.

We recognise today is not a day of celebration for all Australians, and we acknowledge the pain, suffering and emotional trauma of many first nations people that ...began on this day 234 years ago and, for many, still continues today.

We respect the views of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who consider 26 January as a day of mourning, or a day to mark the survival of their ongoing history, traditions and culture.

CASPA acknowledge and respect First Nations people’s as the traditional custodians of this land. We also acknowledge and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders values, strength, resilience and the fundamental role that the world’s longest surviving culture holds in our nations identity.

Are you interested in making a difference in the lives of vulnerable children and young people? Register for our Shared Lives Training starting February 15th and start your Carer journey today.
