Welcome Reception Sponsor

Healing Foundation

Healing Foundation logo

The Healing Foundation is a national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation that partners with communities to address the ongoing trauma caused by actions such as the forced removal of children from their families and communities. Trauma, and the legacy of past policies and practices, can rob families and communities of hope and purpose. The Healing Foundation works with communities, members of the Stolen Generations and their descendants, to design solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems. The Healing Foundation’s evaluations show amazing outcomes can be achieved when Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are supported to lead and develop their own responses.
The Healing Foundation continues to build the national evidence base on healing complex trauma. Drawing on these lessons it is building a theory of change that values both Indigenous cultural knowledge and the international evidence base on trauma.  It has supported more than 135 culturally strong, community led Indigenous healing projects around Australia, and over 19,600 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, women and men have participated in healing activities. About 94% of participants have reported improvements in their social and emotional wellbeing.

Australian Unity Limited

Australian Unity Limited logo

Australian Unity is a health, wealth and living organisation providing products and services designed to help people thrive. More than one million Australians have created a bright future with us. 
As a mutual company, we trace our roots back to a group of farsighted individuals who met in Melbourne over 175 years ago. They were determined and optimistic that they might establish an organisation that would provide for their own and their communities’ needs—needs unmet by the government of the day. 
Today, our purpose remains the same. Australians are now faced with challenges including creating financial security in an increasingly uncertain economic environment, managing increasing rates of chronic disease, and securing a dignified and healthy retirement. Our organisation is shaped to address these and other community challenges. 
Our businesses span operations providing healthcare, financial services, and retirement and living services, employing more than 7,500 people across Australia.

The Minerals Council of Australia represents Australia’s world-class exploration, mining and minerals processing industry.

The minerals sector’s approach to working with Indigenous communities is founded in mutual respect and recognises the rights and interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in relation to the lands and waters to which there is a special connection.

The sector engages with local communities as key stakeholders, acknowledging traditional and cultural connections. The sector believes that the communities it works closely with should materially benefit from associated mining activity.
