Through the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program, the City of Wanneroo has developed a business plan that documents what we will do within our sphere of influence to contribute to reconciliation in Australia. The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) outlines practical actions we will take to build strong relationships and enhanced respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.
Put simply, the RAP program is about turning our organisations good intentions into real actions.
After a very successful completion of the 2012-2014 RAP, Council endorsed the 2015-2017 RAP on Tuesday 9 January, 2014. The City of Wanneroo developed its RAP through extensive community consultation with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal residents. The City has a RAP Working group that comprises of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community members as well as City of Wanneroo Councilors. The RAP Working Group meet quarterly to track and keep the City accountable for fulfilling the actions within the RAP, as well as continuing to provide an advisory role to administration and other community groups and agencies within the City of Wanneroo.
