WSCLC is at the beginning of the RAP journey and on 26 February 2021 formally launched our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), developed in acknowledgment of the gaps within our organisation and continued improvements we can make. As a Community Legal Centre, we believe that our organisation has a particularly important responsibility to promote respect and reconciliation. Our Reflect RAP will allow our organisation to develop and establish relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders, and build a strong foundation for future commitment to RAPs and reconciliation initiatives.
We believe it is important to be held accountable to the commitments we make, and have provided a full copy of our RAP here.
Our Reconciliation Action Plan will drive and direct our work at WSCLC to thinking towards reflection and reconciliation. Our launch has marked the start of what will be an organisational effort to better our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders cultures.
We were honoured to have Walangari Karntawarra and Diramu Aboriginal Dance and Didgeridoo perform and share their culture. The food, provided by Kallico Catering in Rooty Hill, made the event memorable for all staff.
We are delighted to have launched our RAP, and look forward to a year of developing our organisation into one that is trusted, safe and known by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
