Our new RAP was endorsed in October 2021. We will continue and expand our RAP work over the next two years with a focus on the following four challenges:
- continuing and deepening the development of our cultural capacity and the promotion of positive race relations using anti discrimination strategies including policy and education on the effects of racism
- creating employment pathways and pathways for volunteering and student placements for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples at The Family Centre
- expanding our engagement strategies for connecting with Aboriginal communities, organisations, and programs at all levels of our organisation
- increasing participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our program co-design and delivery
We are committed to working together to contribute to the creation of a just, equitable and reconciled Australia.
Our Vision for Reconciliation
Our vision for reconciliation is for the recognition and celebration of the diverse cultures, practices and rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the achievement of equality in life circumstances. In the process of reconciling, we acknowledge the costs to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of sharing this land. We will boldly challenge beliefs and attitudes that perpetuate the effects of the history of European settlement.
Our commitment will be lived in all aspects of our organisation and through the services we provide for children young people and families.
