Intereach Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

The Intereach 2022-2024 Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan is Intereach’s third RAP; it’s our ongoing commitment to Reconciliation in the communities where we work, whilst continuing to support the national dialogue about Reconciliation and constitutional change. Our RAP was developed through a working group that consisted of both Indigenous and non-indigenous staff across different programs within our footprint.

Our Vision for Reconciliation is communities where the dignity and worth of every person is seen as important and where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are supported to make their unique contribution to a future that is full of endless opportunity and hope.

As the Intereach footprint covers a significant area of regional and remote New South Wales and Victoria, our staff and volunteers have the privilege of working with and getting to know a large number of unique Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, listening to their experiences and learning about what is important to them.

We acknowledge that the people in these communities are the experts in regard to their needs, goals and aspirations, and we commit to engaging with their Elders and key representatives to learn how we can best work alongside them.

Our organisation is continually striving to provide a culturally safe and supportive space, where our staff and volunteers are encouraged to share and listen to stories and learn more about Reconciliation in Australia; to work together to contribute to more resilient communities which are well supported with appropriate services.

We further acknowledge that Reconciliation is a process, often involving learning over a lifetime, rather than the achievement of an endpoint.
Our organisation is committed to leading the way on this journey for all of our communities.
