Reconciliation Action Plan 2013-2017

The Reconciliation Action Plan 2013–2017 demonstrates Council’s commitment to reconciliation for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. A reconciled community within Brimbank will be an active, sustainable and highly connected community with improved lifelong learning, health and wellbeing of all community members.

The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 

  • outlines priority actions that are unique to Brimbank exploring new opportunities for action.
  • is used within Council to build relationships, shows respect, and create opportunities for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
  • was developed through the Brimbank Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group, comprising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representatives, community service providers and Council officers.

We’re currently reviewing the new Reconciliation Action Plan 2018-2022, which will be released for consultation later in the year. Updates will be provided on this page.

The Reconciliation Action Plan 2018-2022 will build on the strengths and achievements of the current plan, and identify key priorities for action over the next four years. The themes and strategic directions proposed are:

  • Relationships – building and maintaining strong meaningful and respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and network groups.
  • Respect – demonstrating respect to the people and the culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander as a commitment towards reconciliation.
  • Opportunities – working in partnership with other relevant stakeholders to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have equal access to local opportunities.
