Reconciliation Action Plan and our Working Group

Reconciliation Action Plans (RAP) provide a framework for organisations to realise their vision for reconciliation. RAPs are practical plans of action built on relationships, respect and opportunities. They create social change and economic opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

At the Ordinary Meeting of Council on 4 April 2017, Council adopted the City's first RAP. The first stage of developing a Reconciliation Action Plan is a Reflect RAP. A Reflect RAP is for organisations just starting out on their reconciliation journey. This type of RAP will guide the City to build the foundations for relationships, respect and opportunities. A Reflect RAP will provide the time and opportunity to raise awareness and support for a RAP within our City.  It will also assist to develop a solid RAP governance model and build the business case for future commitments to cultural learning, and practicing cultural protocols considering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment. The City Launched the RAP with a community event on Saturday 27 May in conjunction with the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Referendum during Reconciliation Week.
