Creating an Australia where all individuals and communities can flourish

What does January 26 mean to you?

Wesley Mission Queensland has given staff the option to work on the Australia Day public holiday, recognising the conflicting emotions this date has for the community and in particular First Nations people. Up to 30% of WMQ office staff chose to work on Australia Day and we anticipate this number to triple next year.

'WMQ’s vision is for a compassionate, just and inclusive society for all, and acknowledging this date is difficult for many people is an important step in the journey towards reconciliation.' - Wesley Mission Queensland CEO Jude Emmer.
