How we help FAQs

A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a formal document outlining how an organisation will contribute to reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Australia. RAPs are prepared by organizations in partnership with their local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities, and are intended to be living documents that evolve over time. Organizations that have developed a RAP do so as part of their commitment to contributing to the process of reconciliation. A RAP is a voluntary action plan and there is no legal requirement for organizations to have one. However, all Australian government departments and agencies are required to develop a RAP as part of the Commonwealth Government’s Reconciliation Action Plan Initiative.
There are many reasons why you might need a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Maybe your company is required to have one by the Commonwealth Government, or maybe you want to improve relations with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Whatever the reason, a RAP can help your business progress towards reconciliation. So what is a RAP? It’s basically a document that outlines your company’s commitment to reconciliation. It includes specific actions and targets that you plan to achieve, as well as reporting mechanisms to measure your progress.
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the approach you take to developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) will depend on your organisation’s specific circumstances and culture. Our experienced and dedicated staff can assist you through the entire journey.
