National Day of Healing, formerly and still occasionally known as National Sorry Day, offers the community the opportunity to acknowledge the impact of the policies spanning more than 150 years of forcible removal of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children from their families. The first National Sorry Day was held on 26 May 1998 following the release of the findings and recommendations from the report. One of its 54 recommendations is that a national day of observance be declared.
