Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan

This year the Town of Victoria Park, with guidance from the Mindeera Advisory Group, has developed a new Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). 

The Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan reflects the Town’s commitment to fostering understanding, respect, and collaboration between all members of our community.

It is an important document which demonstrates the Town's commitment to reconciliation and is a framework for action.  It will promote cultural awareness and inclusion across our community and will be a platform for building long term and meaningful relationships to advance reconciliation locally.

What is Reconciliation?

Reconciliation is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non- Indigenous peoples. As a movement reconciliation has a long history, with the collective voices from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to the rightful protection of their Country and cultures being decades long and consistent. These have resulted in some substantial changes and some disappointing setbacks, both important dimensions to the
story of reconciliation.

The goal of reconciliation is that there is widespread acceptance of our nation’s history and agreement that the wrongs of the past will never be repeated— there is truth, justice, healing and historical acceptance.

Why have a RAP?

The Town uses the RAP to address the dimensions of reconciliation in everything we do.
It helps us to:

• Define priorities, and short and long-term goals and actions

• Prioritise budget and resource allocations

• Collect and evaluate performance measures
