INDIGENOUS ROUND

The Sydney Roosters are proud to be partnering with Recognise and AbSec for Indigenous Round.

AbSec (The Aboriginal Child, Family and Community Care State Secretariat) is a not-for-profit NSW Aboriginal peak organisation, working to support Aboriginal organisations TO ensure better outcomes  for vulnerable Aboriginal children, families  and communities.

AbSec is committed to ensuring that Aboriginal children are raised in a safe environment, with a strong connection to culture and who they are, as well as providing the best possible opportunities to fulfil their potential, supported by Aboriginal organisations. 

Recnogise - RECONGISE is the campaign to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Australian Constitution and to deal with the racial discrimination.

RECONGISE has two main aims - to celebrate the legacy of the people that campaigned for the 1967 referendum and to have one million conversations about recognition.
