Reconciliation Action Plan 2013-2017

The Reconciliation Action Plan 2013–2017 is our commitment to reconciliation for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

A reconciled community in Brimbank is active, sustainable, and highly connected. It has improved lifelong learning, health and wellbeing of all community members.

The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 

  • outlines priority actions that are unique to Brimbank; 
  • explores new opportunities for action;
  • is used within Council to build relationships, show respect, and create opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; and
  • 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 Reconciliation Action Plan which will be released for consultation. Updates will be provided on this page.

The updated Reconciliation Action Plan will

  • build on the strengths and achievements of the current plan; and
  • identify key priorities for action.

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.
