Reconciliation Action Plan
In 2017, Council and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community representatives met to discuss ways Council could improve its relationship with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, including the development of a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
A Reconciliation Action Plan is a business plan that details how an organisation will contribute towards reconciliation in Australia. RAPs build the foundations for improving relationships, respect and opportunities through raising cultural awareness within organisations and the broader community.
Reconciliation Australia is the not-for-profit community organisation responsible for managing the RAP program across Australia, ensuring consistency and quality by setting minimum requirements for the plans.
Council is currently drafting its first RAP, the twelve-month ‘Reflect’ plan.
