Flying the flag for NAIDOC Week at EGHS

NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of First Nation peoples.

NAIDOC Week is celebrated by all Australians and is a great opportunity to learn more about First Nation communities.

The 2022 NAIDOC Week theme is Get up! Stand up! Show Up! This theme encourages everyone to make a genuine commitment to support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative reforms.

East Grampians Health Service is one of the first organisations in Ararat to raise the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags, at both the Ararat and Willaura campuses, and fly them proudly in front of our organisation.

This is the first step in the journey to making a strong commitment to providing culturally safe and appropriate healthcare to our First Nations community.
