Reconciliation Action Plan feedback wanted

Published on Monday, 21 September 2020 at 11:28:41 AM

The City of Greater Geraldton is committed to reconciliation and wants your feedback on closing the gap initiatives the organisation has delivered in the past three years.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the current review of the City’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is about understanding how the projects and programs designed and developed to close the gap of disadvantage between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians have been working.

“When we talk about reconciliation we are talking about a process of building and strengthening respectful relationships between the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community that enables us to work together to close the gaps and to achieve a shared sense of fairness and justice,” he said.

“The RAP outlines the City strategies to provide Aboriginal people with equitable access to the City’s facilities and services and to build capacity, support and respond to the current and future identified needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

“To ensure we are still on track we need community feedback on what we’ve done so far and potential ideas on what more could be done to include in the City’s 2020-2023 Reconciliation Action Plan”

If you would like to provide feedback on the RAP, take the online survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/CommunityRAP

Hard copies of the survey are also available at the City Civic Centre, Geraldton Regional Library, QEII Seniors and Community Centre and the Mullewa District Office.  Survey closes Monday 19 October 2020 at 9am.
