THE GOM CENTRAL PROJECT IS MADE ON KAURNA AND PERAMANGK COUNTRY.

We wish to acknowledge the Kaurna and Peramangk Peoples, and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians; their spiritual, physical, emotional, mental and economic connection to the land and seas. We understand that their inherent cultural and spiritual beliefs continue to sustain the living People of each region.

The Guardian is appointed to promote the rights and interests of children and young in care. That means you can talk to them if something isn’t right for you, and they’ll stick up for you.

CREATE FOUNDATION

These guys are the national consumer body representing the voices of children and young people in care. They try to improve the care system, and empower young people in care.
