Reconciliation Action Plan - Reflect

The Bunbury Geographe ‘Reflect’ Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) was a collaborative effort of the Shires of Harvey, Dardanup and Capel and the City of Bunbury. It outlines a number of objectives and initiatives that will inform the policies, practices and procedures of each LGA. While development of the RAP was a cooperative effort, there will be specific policies and initiatives that will apply to all LGAs and others that will be delivered by individual LGAs’.

 

The City endorsed the Reflect RAP in May 2019. The endorsement is the first step for each of the local government authorities in developing real actions and will guide future policies, procedures and practices around reconciliation.

The ‘Reflect’ RAP is a collaborative approach to creating meaningful relationships, enhanced respect and sustainable opportunities for the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. 

The ‘Reflect’ RAP is the first of four RAP’s as outlined by the Reconciliation Australia RAP Framework. Its focus is on building relationships and raising awareness.  The City, in collaboration with the Shire’s of Harvey, Dardanup and Capel are currently preparing a report on the RAP Reflect and planning has commenced to develop the next stage of RAP - Innovate

Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
