Reconciliation Action Plan
RAP stands for Reconciliation Action Plan. It's an initiative of Reconciliation Australia.
Reconciliation Australia's "vision is for an Australia that recognises and respects the special place, culture, rights and contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; and where good relationships between First Australians and other Australians become the foundation for local strength and success; and the enhancement of our national wellbeing."
So what's in a RAP?
RAP is a plan - its a way of turning good intentions into actions. Every RAP is specific to each organisation and outlines the practical actions the organisation will take to build strong relationships and enhanced respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.
