Mission Australia’s vision for reconciliation is that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this country will be restored to a place of equity, dignity and respect.

We long for the healing of our national soul as we see Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures fully valued, broken relationships restored and social inequalities eradicated.

Our Reconciliation Action Plan or RAP is an agreed strategy of how Mission Australia intends to contribute to the huge task of reducing the disturbing gap in living standards between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Aboriginal Australians.

Mission Australia’s RAP has emerged after a lengthy process of consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander colleagues, our own staff, other stakeholders and with enormous encouragement from Reconciliation Australia.

Our RAP has been developed under the auspices of Reconciliation Australia’s RAP program and follows the recognised guidelines under which commitments to action follow the well- established themes of relationships, respect and opportunities.

These themes align well with our own organisational values of respect, compassion, integrity, perseverance and celebration.
