The City of South Perth’s draft Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan 2020-2022 (draft RAP) is now out for feedback.

Over the past two years, the City has been working with key stakeholders and the community to develop the draft RAP, which provides a framework to help us achieve our vision for and commitment to reconciliation.

The draft RAP is a strategic document that will support the City’s operations and activities and includes practical actions that will drive the City’s contribution to reconciliation both internally and in our community. The actions are meaningful yet aspirational and innovative to help us trial new approaches for developing and strengthening relationships, showing respect and improving opportunities for Aboriginal people.

The City has developed the draft RAP in line with Reconciliation Australia’s RAP Framework, which includes four types of RAP to suit organisations at different stages of their reconciliation journey. As the City has already developed and successfully implemented our Aboriginal Engagement Strategy 2013, Reconciliation Australia determined that we should develop our first RAP at the second level, Innovate, which indicates that the City is at the second stage of our reconciliation journey.

The draft RAP includes four sections, called pillars, which are: Relationships, Respect, Opportunities, and Governance. Within these four pillars are goals, actions and deliverables that have been identified to develop and implement over the next two years.

You can find out more about the journey to develop our first Reconciliation Action Plan in the background section below.

Take a look at the video of some members of the community and the City’s Aboriginal Reference Group talking about what the draft RAP means to them.
