First Peoples Advisory Committee

Elevating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices within Bass Coast Health has been a long term aspiration for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community and Bass Coast Health.

In the spirit of self-determination, the First Peoples Advisory Committee determine community needs and interests, building trust, raising Indigenous priorities and informing culturally responsive healthcare.

We value the diversity and strength of our people and communities and acknowledge the Bunurong People as the Traditional Custodians, their Elders past and present and the spirit of their ancestors, of the land on which we live, work and learn. We commit to reconciliation and engaging respectfully with all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our community.
