1800 My Options acknowledges and pays our respects to the Traditional Custodians of the land that we are situated on, the peoples of the Kulin Nation. As a statewide service, we also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waters across Victoria. We pay our respects to them, their cultures and their Elders past and present. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded and that we are beneficiaries of stolen land and dispossession, which began over 200 years ago and continues today.
1800 My Options is a service of Women’s Health Victoria, supported by the Victorian Government.
