The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is about developing strong foundations on which to build relationships to achieve a lasting and successful investment in reconciliation. Our RAP is a commitment to reconciliation that documents what is currently occurring and highlights our future planning using a holistic approach. The RAP will create lasting and meaningful relationships, encourage respect, and promote sustainable opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians within our region.
Council’s first Gladstone Region Reconciliation Action Plan Reference Group has been formed, this group is made up of two elected members and seven members from our community. The group of volunteers will provide strategic advice to Council to drive the successful delivery of the Plan's actions which aim to create lasting and meaningful relationships and promote sustainable opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in our region.
