NAIDOC week is an annual celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture that takes place in July. In light of COVID-19 the National NAIDOC Committee decided to postpone the usual July NAIDOC Week to 8 – 15 November 2020.
NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Relationships Australia WA will be participating in NAIDOC events across Perth to celebrate the week.

Aboriginal Community Support
In addition to our general services, which are open to everyone, Relationships Australia also has several programs specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People. Our overall aim in service delivery is not to make the people fit the service, but to make the service fit the people.
