National Sorry Day Committee (NSDC)

The National Sorry Day Committee (NSDC) is a not-for-profit organisation that advocates for the rights of the Stolen Generations at the national level. The NSDC was formed in 1998 in response to the tabling in 1997 of Bringing them home, the Report of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from their Families.

About Us: Our Vision and Objectives

  • NSDC's Vision is of an Australia that acknowledges and understands its history and seeks positive action to address the trans-generational impacts of the Stolen Generations.
  • To realise this vision, we pursue the following objectives:
    • Education: Provide resources to enable communities to raise awareness and understanding of the history and continuing effects of the forcible removal policies
    • Engagement: Foster collaborative and constructive relationships to progress positive change for the Stolen Generations
    • Expertise: Be an inclusive voice that represents and advocates for the Stolen Generations at a national level

Stolen Generations



Schools: The objectives of the Schools Program are to help inform teachers on how they can hold culturally appropriate and engaging events that mark National Sorry Day and the Anniversary of the Apology.
