What is the RAP program?

The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program is a framework for organisations to realise their vision for reconciliation.

Through the program, organisations develop a RAP—a business plan that documents what an organisation commits to do to contribute to reconciliation in Australia.

A RAP will enable your organisation to commit to implementing and measuring practical actions that build respectful relationships and create opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

There are four different RAPs within the Program:

  • Reflect
  • Innovate
  • Stretch
  • Elevate.

Joining the RAP Program offers your organisation:

  • Access to a tried and tested program based on evidence
  • A framework for action, developed in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations as well as government and corporate Australia
  • Membership to a dynamic, supportive and fast growing community of RAP organisations who are paving the way.

Benefits of developing a RAP

A RAP  gives your organisation the best chance of achieving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement objectives, and delivering broader outcomes including:

  • The opportunity to become an employer of choice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  • A more dynamic, innovative and diverse workforce.
  • A more culturally safe and tolerant workplace.
  • Access to new markets and better penetration of existing markets.
  • Better service delivery to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.
  • The opportunity to contribute to new projects, industries, services, products and ways of doing business.

Working with Reconciliation Australia

Reconciliation Australia is an independent, national not-for-profit organisation promoting reconciliation by building relationships, respect and trust between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Our vision is for a reconciled, just and equitable Australia.

Through our programs and initiatives we work to connect people and organisations; provide frameworks for action, resources; and policy advice and promote success and engagement activities.

We support hundreds of organisations across Australia to participate in the RAP program. We can provide advice, templates and resources as well as provide feedback on your draft RAP.

In some cases, we may also be able to help engage your staff and management group, connect your organisation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders and promote your organisation’s good work.
