National Sorry Day – 26 May 2022

We remember and acknowledge the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were forcibly removed from their families and communities, which we now know as ‘The Stolen Generations’. National Sorry Day is a day to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect on how we can all share in the healing process.

The inaugural National Sorry Day was held on 26 May 1998.

This year, the National Reconciliation Week (NRW) theme is Be Brave. Make Change a challenge; to

  • Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation to 
  • Make Change for the benefit of all Australians, change starts in your daily life – where you live, work, play, and socialise.

The Office of the National Rural Health Commissioner accepts and recognises the truth of our history. We acknowledge that this is an ongoing source of intergenerational trauma for Aboriginal and Torres Islander peoples.

The Office is committed to working in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforces to improve Indigenous health outcomes and promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ expertise, opinions, leadership and perspectives through their voices, shared stories, culturally safe feedback mechanisms, and collaborative design processes.
