Kudos Services acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


The Kudos Services Team confirms its ongoing commitment to Reconciliation.

We are strongly committed to improving the cultural, spiritual and family wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and to building strong, safe, resilient and stable communities.

We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first Australians with unique cultures, languages and spiritual relationships to the land and seas and the inherent rights, laws, customs, religions and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We commit to continuing to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians to achieve:

“A united Australia which respects this land of ours; values the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage and provides justice and equity for all”

(Vision of the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation).

Kudos Services recognises the Government apology to the Indigenous peoples of Australia on 13th February 2008 and acknowledgement of the mistreatment of those who were Stolen Generations for their pain, suffering and hurt, and that of their descendants and their families left behind. We applaud the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Recognition Bill 2013 that paves the way for Constitutional change.

At Kudos Services, reconciliation is everyone’s responsibility and means that all staff, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander customers, and communities work together to deliver inclusive and sustainable outcomes.

Kudos Services plays an important role in addressing the disadvantage experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and upholds principles of a culturally competent workforce and culturally inclusive program and service design.


We believe everyone has the right to live their best life.

At Kudos Services, we are committed to a culture that embraces and fosters diversity and inclusion. We are committed to the social and economic inclusion of people with disabilities and their families to maximise their individual potential.

We recognise that society can restrict people with disability from participation and equality. We are committed to challenging these barriers to help children achieve high quality outcomes, as well as being an equal opportunity and inclusive employer.

Children with a disability share the same universal rights as all people, and share the additional rights of all children as identified in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We will uphold the legislative requirements contained in the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) and recognise the principles and values contained in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, to promote the equality of opportunity for all people and prevent discrimination based on disabilities.
