Our Vision and Our Values

TO IMPROVE, PROTECT AND FOSTER THE BEST INTERESTS OF ALL ABORIGINAL PERSONS WITHIN THE AREA
Our Vision

We believe:
In the value of Aboriginality, both to our members and Aboriginal people within our area, and to the broader Australian community. It is central to the strength and success of our people and our organisation into the future

Our Committment:
Deerubbin seeks to strengthen the confidence and self-reliance of Aboriginal people and families, and to provide them greater opportunity:

“Aborigines, as all people, of all ages, will involve themselves and take total responsibility for their lives, at their choice of tasks that are significant to their history and nature, that they can undertake and shape at their pace, at their point of understanding, moving in their choices of directions towards their choices of goals in ways they find are satisfying to them and to the wider society”.

We are committed to building a confident, resilient and caring community, based upon respect for Aboriginality and Aboriginal values.

As an organisation, we are also committed to professional, respectful and ethical behaviour.

We will seek to build and deepen our partnerships across Greater Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains with government and non-government organisations which share this commitment to the development and success of our community in a professional, respectful and ethical manner.
