Acknowledgement of Country

VALID acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country and pays respect to their Elders, past and present. We extend the same respect to all First Nations people we’re in contact with.

VALID’s work is carried out on sovereign Aboriginal land that was never ceded. Our main office is on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation.

Acknowledgement of Lived and Living Experience

VALID acknowledges the lived and living experience of people with disability and their family members, carers and supporters.

We respect and honour their resilience and strength in challenging generations of discrimination, coercion and neglect to achieve inclusion, empowerment and rights.

We recognise the huge contribution people with lived and living experience make to VALID’s work and disability advocacy in general.

Inclusion and Diversity

VALID celebrates, values and welcomes people of all backgrounds, genders, sexualities, cultures, religions, ages, bodies and abilities.

We strive to reflect and make real the values of inclusion and diversity in all that we do.

We commit to making our programs and services, and our workplaces, truly safe spaces in which all people can think, act and express themselves freely.
