Our vision for reconciliation is to build a diverse and cohesive community that welcomes all its members and recognises the value that each member brings.
We acknowledge the original ownership and custodianship of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their continuing cultures and the valuable contribution Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples make to our contemporary society.
We acknowledge the hurt, dislocation and disadvantage experienced by Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples as a result of colonisation. We seek to help redress some of that disadvantage through our programs. We also acknowledge the advantages and benefits that can result from reconciliation, and how this can enhance our programs.
Our RAP was developed by staff throughout the organisation interested in progressing reconciliation in a practical way through the work we do in the local community.
This RAP builds from the experience of the first RAP and ensures we provide programs that are relevant, as well as offer opportunities for Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people to work at WCS and share in the life of the community.
