At Cancer Council NSW, we feel that we’ve come a long way, and yet we are very much just making the first steps on our reconciliation journey.
This is our first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), in which we aim to establish a solid foundation of respect, and begin to develop relationships across NSW. In twelve months time, we will develop our second RAP, which will cover a three-year period.
Through this process, we display our ongoing commitment to respect and promote Aboriginal culture, rights and perspectives.
Following the nationally recommended model developed by Reconciliation Australia, we established a Strategic Working Group in 2010, comprised of key staff members from all Divisions. We also identified a larger number of individuals across the organisation with a commitment to Aboriginal health and engagement issues. These people led our “˜Yarn Up’ consultation process, resulting in our first RAP.
