Reconciliation Action Plan
Have your say on our Reconciliation Action Plan (Engagement phase now closed)
The City of Wanneroo wishes to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land, the Whadjuk people. We would like to pay respect to the Elders of the Noongar nation, past, present and future, who have walked and cared for the land and we acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contributions made to the life of this City and this region.
The City is developing its fourth Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which we want your input on. Reconciliation is about working together to strengthen relationships, celebrate culture and recognise heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Tell us how you want to see the City continue to move forward on its reconciliation journey through our community survey, which is open until Friday, 10 June – as outlined on this page.
The ideas and feedback received will directly shape the actions outlined in RAP and influence how these are implemented in our local community.
Attend a workshop
Members of the community are also invited to participate in a public workshop to identify priorities and desires within the community for the City’s reconciliation journey. Click below to book for an upcoming workshop, which will be held on:
- Workshop 1 - Monday, 30 May 5-6pm, and
- Workshop 2 - Friday, 3 June 12-1pm.
If you have any queries, please contact the City’s Community Development Team.
The City of Wanneroo is committed to supporting healthy and inclusive communities where all people are accepted, welcomed and encouraged to participate and contribute.
As a City, we recognise that community health and wellbeing is influenced by a wide range of factors, including social networks, employment opportunities, the places we live, as well as the opportunities we are presented with to live healthy lives.
The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which is one of several plans that guide our work in creating healthy and inclusive communities, is currently being reviewed.
The RAP outlines practical actions we will take to build strong relationships and enhanced respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians and contribute to reconciliation in Australia.
The City developed its first RAP in 2013 with input from external and internal stakeholders being involved in the development of the priorities and actions.
Check this page regularly for ways to have a say and updates on the RAP development.
