This is a great opportunity, I personally benefited greatly from this training. Love your work Cy Crew🙏❤️

I don't recommend you guys after I have been trying to get in there for almost a year after I rolled my car over and not being happy. So much for looking after Mental Health. 🤬

Wish this was for offer down in Bunbury

From the 3rd of July to the 10th of July is NAIDOC week. This is a time to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is also an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth. Below is the theme / statement for this year’s NAIDOC celebrations, Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! We encourage everyone to have a read through and ask yourself what this statement means to you and what more you may be able to do in this space.

“We have a proud history of getting up, standing up, and showing up.
From the frontier wars and our earliest resistance fighters to our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities fighting for change today—we continue to show up.
Now is our time. We cannot afford to lose momentum for change.
We all must continue to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! for systemic change and keep rallying around our mob, our Elders, our communities.
Whether it’s seeking proper environmental, cultural and heritage protections, Constitutional change, a comprehensive process of truth-telling, working towards treaties, or calling out racism—we must do it together.
It must be a genuine commitment by all of us to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! and support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative reforms.
It’s also time to celebrate the many who have driven and led change in our communities over generations—they have been the heroes and champions of change, of equal rights and even basic human rights.
Getting Up, Standing Up, and Showing Up can take many forms.
We need to move beyond just acknowledgement, good intentions, empty words and promises, and hollow commitments. Enough is enough.
The relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights.
Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! with us to amplify our voices and narrow the gap between aspiration and reality, good intent and outcome.
Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!”

As we celebrate National Reconciliation Week, Cyrenian House is proud to be a part of the Reconciliation journey and embrace our obligation as a not-for-profit alcohol and other drug treatment service, making meaningful, ongoing commitments too the principles of Reconciliation.
We feel privileged to be able to share this country with the first sovereign Nations of the Australian continent and its adjacent islands. For more than 60,000 years these lands were cared for by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Sadly, the arrival of European settlement was catastrophic for many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and it is the responsibility of all Australians to build a better, fairer future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. One part of building that future is committing to reconciliation and acknowledging the past injustices that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have endured. Reconciliation is everyone’s business and this week during National Reconciliation Week we will be striving, as we do every week, to live up to the promises and challenges.
The theme this year is “Be Brave – Make Change” and we are committed to being brave and making change.
Reconciliation is important to Cyrenian House and our 2nd Stretch Rap demonstrates our commitment to turning good intentions into real actions on an ongoing basis.

Cyrenian House would like to Acknowledge National Sorry Day.

We are committed to ensuring our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage, knowledge and cultures are recognised by our community, and embedded in the work that we do.

Today we ask you all to take moment to reflect, recognise and pay tribute to the members of the Stolen Generations.

On 26 May 1997, the ‘Bringing Them Home’ report was tabled in Federal Parliament, two years after a national inquiry into the forced removal of Indigenous children was ordered.

National Sorry Day is a day to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generation Survivors and reflect on how Australians can all play a part in the healing process for the people and the nation. While this date Carrie’s great significance for the Stolen Generations and other Aboriginal and Torres Islander peoples, it is also commemorated by Australians right around the country.
