Junction Australia is developing its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) – Reflect RAP.
Our RAP reflects our commitment to reconciliation and as we developed the RAP our primary objective is to support greater opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, improve service delivery for clients and build greater connections with communities and stakeholders.
A Working Group has been creating the RAP and our reconciliation vision is:
Junction Australia celebrates the diversity, strength and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We acknowledge the grief, trauma and loss of past and present harm and are committed to work together to create opportunities for healing, learning, growth and a brighter future.
There is a strong belief in the organisation that reconciliation is everybody’s responsibility. Reconciliation requires non-Aboriginal Australians to recognise the difficult and racist past Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have endured and still endure today, helping other non – Aboriginal Australians understand the complex, inter-related and inter- generational issues facing them today. Understanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s culture and history will help gain and maintain respectful relationships now and in the future.
