The City of Casey invites community members to provide feedback on its draft Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2024/26.
The draft plan outlines Council’s commitment to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, detailing a range of actions designed to build understanding, commitment, and respect for culture.
Developed by Council’s RAP Working Group, in conjunction with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community through the annual community ‘Yarn Up’ at the Casey Aboriginal Gathering Place in Doveton, the Innovate RAP will run for two years and includes a range of actions that align to the three pillars of reconciliation set by Reconciliation Australia. It also outlines actions for achieving our organisation’s vision for reconciliation:
Our vision for reconciliation is to proudly recognise the rich culture of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. Together we acknowledge the past and work towards a more equitable future. We are determined to listen and empower our whole community.
City of Casey Chair of Administrators Noelene Duff PSM said Council is committed to its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and recognises the rich and continuous connection that Aboriginal people have with the City of Casey, which is home to approximately 2,395 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members.
“We recognise reconciliation as a shared responsibility that will shape a better, united tomorrow,” she said.
“Through the development of this RAP, we aspire to build upon the remarkable achievements of the Aboriginal Gathering Place in Doveton and further align our organisation with the goals of reconciliation.”
