Our commitment to diversity
At Ablelink, we believe that it is an integral part of our role to influence and support inclusiveness in all areas of the community. Within our work, we are committed to improve the inclusion, mental health and well being of all of our community through the reduction of stigma, discrimination and social exclusion and the provision of equitable and personable service delivery and supports. We value and respect all individuals regardless of age, gender, culture, ability and personal identity.
Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners
We aim to make head office as welcoming as possible to Koori people. We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we are located, the people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders, past and present, and the Elders from other communities we travel through.
