FCA on Twitter

Today is National Sorry Day. We remember and acknowledge the Stolen Generations who were forcibly removed from their families and communities. We stand with First Nations people as a sign of respect and solidarity.

ABC's @amy_bainbridge has done a feature piece on the heart-breaking impact of the Youpla collapse. These people deserve better outcomes.
