Our guiding principles support us in our work to achieve positive outcomes in the community. They inform all the decisions we make to ensure we provide the best possible service to children, young people and families.

We are committed to creating trauma-informed communities that build environments where people cope effectively with stress and trauma and heal their emotional and behavioural health.

We seek to provide inclusive services where all children, young people and families can access the support they need to awaken hope and develop to their potential.

We acknowledge the inherent Aboriginal spirituality of this country and support the self determination of Aboriginal people. We are passionate about working with communities so all families, children and young people can thrive, with a strong foundation of belonging and identity.

MacKillop celebrates and draws strength from diversity and respects the dignity of all people. Every person at MacKillop has the right to be safe and to be treated justly. We value every person’s ability, cultural or linguistic backgrounds, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, intersex status, relationship status, religious or spiritual beliefs, socio-economic status and age.
