Reconciliation Action Plan
Mission Australia’s vision for reconciliation is that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of this country will be restored to a place of equity, dignity and respect. We aspire to the healing of our national soul and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures to be fully valued, with broken relationships restored and social inequalities eradicated.
Our Reconciliation Action Plan, or RAP, is an agreed strategy on how Mission Australia intends to contribute to reducing the gap in living standards between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Australians.
The plan follows Reconciliation Australia’s well-established themes of relationships, respect and opportunities, which align well with our own organisational values of respect, compassion, integrity, perseverance and celebration.
Developed with our staff and Reconciliation Australia, the Mission Australia RAP for July 2017 – June 2019 is the roadmap for implementing lasting change. Actions will include training, cultural awareness and better policies to recruit and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees.
