What is a RAP

A Reconciliation Action Plan is a framework to support organisations achieve positive reconciliation outcomes. 

Reconciliation Tasmania (RT) is committed to supporting Tasmanian organisations in the development and implementation of RAPs.  Accordingly, a priority for RT in 2018 was to establish a panel of local RT members as trained RAP consultants to develop Tasmanian RAPs in 2018 and beyond.

Currently, Reconciliation Tasmania is involved with RAPs for Macquarie Point Development Corporation, R.A.C.T., Tasmanian Salvation Army and Hobart City Council.

Through the development of RAPs, we aim to explore the potential for unique commitments that each RAP organisation can work towards.  RAPs are an excellent platform for employment, professional development and training within RAP organisations for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The involvement of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities in providing input into the RAP process is vital in identifying the aspirations of these regional Communities.
