Culturally safe care

We’re so proud to be able to offer culturally safe care services to First Nations people. We asked our team what it meant to them – here’s what they had to say.

We recognise and understand the important connection that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have to their community, culture and country.

At Australian Unity, reconciliation matters to us. Our Reconciliation Action Plan outlines how we are playing our part.
