CDC NSW is committed to supporting the communities we serve. If you can see an opportunity where we can work together to help improve our local community, we’d love to hear from you.
Reconciliation Action Plan
In CDC NSW we recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as the First Australians; whose cultures are a vital element of our heritage. We are dedicated to participating in, and promoting, an accurate reflection of Australian history to facilitate the forming of a strong, inclusive and fair community.
In CDC NSW we are entering into this Reconciliation Action Plan to ensure that we establish programs of scheduled actions that are measurable and deliver tangible outcomes. This Plan is our commitment to moving beyond good words to ensure equality in access to opportunities for education, employment and social connection for all. It also guides us as we seek to influence and engage industry partners, customers, suppliers, and the communities we serve.
This Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan provides a mechanism for broadening the diversity of voices and perspectives we need to hear to ensure we remain relevant to the needs of the broader communities that we serve. Our vision for reconciliation is one where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rights, cultures, achievements, and aspirations are recognised, and genuine inclusion is fostered via partnerships and opportunities.
We are also committed to creating real and enduring opportunities via an approach characterised by qualities of connectedness, respect and equality, and facilitated though recruitment and professional development, as well as through our partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander industries, commercial service providers, and community organisations.

Working towards Reconciliation
CDC NSW is committed to contributing to a more equitable society for all, including for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Our policies and plans are geared to employ more people and work with more suppliers from Aboriginal communities. We also believe in teaching our people the true version of Australian history, which accounts for the plight of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and recognises the civilisation and culture that existed prior to European settlement.
We proudly support our partner Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation, which works tirelessly to support Stolen Generation Survivors and their descendants, and share their stories with audiences across New South Wales with their Mobile Education Centre Bus.

Partnering with Essential Service Providers
At CDC NSW we’re always looking for ways to keep you and all members of the community safe.
An important part of this is our partnership with emergency services workers, who need to know the safety features of our buses in the event of something going wrong.
We regularly invite emergency workers to visit our depots so they can learn about the safety systems of our single and double-deck bus fleets, simulating emergency lifts and practising for difficult situations.
We’d like to thank them for their dedication to the community.
Great Causes and Events
Helping out is what we’re here for. Whenever CDC NSW is presented with an opportunity to help, we do our best to put our resources to work for the community.
We also provide tailored transport services to special needs groups to help them enjoy a range of activities that improve their quality of life.
