Friends of NSDC

The National Sorry Day Committee is committed to building strong and sustainable formal working partnerships, as well as more informal working relationships, with like-minded organisations and agencies across Australia.

Collaboration and partnerships with like -inded organisations help to add value to the projects and policy initiatives that we implement; better enabling us to advance the rights of the Stolen Generations in the long term.

We encourage organisations and individuals who wish to work more closely with the NSDC, and to engage in dialogue and share thoughts with us on the challenges and opportunities in working to support the Stolen Generations, to apply to become an NSDC member.

From time to time, the NSDC also invites organisations to enter into formal partnerships, by developing and signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which helps to clearly identify practical and specific ways in which NSDC and another organisation can work together on a particular project.
