Whittlesea Reconciliation Group

Whittlesea Reconciliation Group

The Whittlesea Reconciliation Group (WRG) is a community-based committee that meets regularly to discuss issues, opportunities, initiatives and programs that impact Aboriginal people living in the City of Whittlesea.

The Whittlesea Reconciliation Group acknowledges the Wurundjeri Willum people as the traditional custodians of this land.

The WRG is a key reference group to Council on the continuing reconciliation process and works towards increasing understanding of Aboriginal people and their culture by bringing people together to support reconciliation.

Vision: a connected community respecting Aboriginal people as the first peoples of Australia - their history and culture, through actions supporting reconciliation.


Sorry Space

On National Sorry Day 2014, Council and the WRG unveiled the City of Whittlesea's Sorry Space - a community reflective space dedicated to members of the Stolen Generations and the Traditional Owners of this land, the Wurundjeri Willum people.

The Sorry Space displays a plaque that was presented to Council by Connecting Home and features a stone plinth for smoking ceremonies and fire rituals.
