Celebrating culture and connection to country

RIVERLAND staff member Aaron McArthur (pictured) encourages other Aboriginal men to seek support if they face challenges in their life that they struggle to cope with alone, explaining there is strength in working together with others.

He once faced the threat of being homeless with his sons, but sought support from ac.care in the Riverland, where he now works supporting other people in the community.

Aaron shared his story at Berri, along with his passion for maintaining and sharing connection with his culture, for our special NAIDOC Week 2020 message.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 impacted on events across the regions to mark NAIDOC Week.

Staff participated in and contributed to events where possible, but we found celebrating the achievements of Aboriginal people, including among our staff, via our social media channels was an effective way to highlight this important week on the ac.care calendar.
