Royal Far West is passionately committed to reconciliation.
We have a long history of supporting Aboriginal children, families and communities in rural and remote Australia. Today, around one quarter of our client families identify as Aboriginal. We are committed to ensuring we provide culturally safe and accountable health, education and disability services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families, organisations and communities. Reconciliation is also an integral part of our organisational strategy.
Our year-long Reflect RAP (May 2021 – June 2022) provides a step-by-step framework to ensure that the principles and actions we will apply and achieve will lead to a more culturally competent workforce and more culturally safe environment for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community partners and families.
This Reflect RAP:
- Highlights our reconciliation journey to date
- Describes our current partnerships with Aboriginal services and community groups
- Outlines existing activities and events we have engaged in to promote reconciliation
- Specifies the key actions (focused on Relationships, Respect, Opportunities and Governance) we have committed to undertaking by July 2022.
Royal Far West is passionately committed to ensuring we provide culturally safe and accountable health, education and disability services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families, organisations and communities. We are also committed to advocating for equal access to services for all regional families, particularly our First Nations families. ”
