Glen Eira Reconciliation Action Plan

Glen Eira City Council has commenced a journey of reconciliation to build a future that is inclusive, respectful, and aware of the contribution of our first Australians to the community that we are today.

Guided by the work of an advisory group of Traditional Owners and community leaders, together with consultation with the Glen Eira community, a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) has been developed and was endorsed by Council in October 2018.

The Glen Eira Reconciliation Action Plan 2018-2020 provides a structured approach to advance reconciliation, focused on building respectful relationships and providing meaningful opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to live and work well, and be acknowledged for their role in the history and development of our City.

Council's RAP is an innovate RAP, developed within the framework set out and approved by Reconciliation Australia.

You can read the new Glen Eira RAP here.

As we move from development to implementation, we are seeking the community's feedback on the RAP and their input on putting the RAP into practice - how to build knowledge of the RAP and engagement with the strategies and actions it sets out for Glen Eira.

You can give us your feedback on the RAP document by sharing a thought in the Guestbook.

And you can help us plan for implementing the RAP by taking the short survey which asks you for your views and ideas on how we can build relationship and improve knowledge and understanding in support of reconciliation.

    The development of Council's first Reconciliation Action Plan has been a journey of understanding and strengthening of relationships, involving many external and internal stakeholders.

    The Reconciliation Action Plan Advisory Group, our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representatives and community members have guided Council through the process with wisdom and integrity.

    Beginning in 2017, the work to develop a RAP for Glen Eira has been collaborative, and in depth, with the final document submitted to Reconciliation Australia in September, and formally endorsed as an Innovate RAP on 24 September 2018.

    An Innovate RAP focuses on developing and strengthening relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and engaging staff, stakeholders and the wider community. Council is proposing to celebrate the endorsement of its first Reconciliation Action Plan with a community lunch.
