Statement of Values

We recognize the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land now occupied by Fawkner and the Fawkner Community House.

We value people’s full participation in a community that promotes the individual’s right to make informed decisions about their own lives and their community.

We value people as equals without discrimination due to gender, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual preference, age, income or belief.

We are committed to improving the quality of life of people and working towards every person in the community having access to, and a fair share of, the economic, social and cultural resources of the community.

We are committed to creating enduring partnerships with individuals and families in the Fawkner community.
