2019 RAP Impact Report


This report explores the impact of the RAP community during the July 2018 – June 2019 reporting period.

Over 500 RAP organisations – approximately half of the organisations with active RAPs – reported data through an online questionnaire.

The questionnaire is part of the reporting required by all RAP organisations. While this provides helpful insights on the RAP network’s progress it does not completely capture the full impact of the RAP network.

This report shows:

RAP organisations demonstrate greater:

  • Recognition of the  importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures to Australia’s national identity:
  • Pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander  cultures.
  • Recognition of the importance of relationships  between Aboriginal and  Torres Strait Islander peoples  and other Australians.

A greater proportion of employees in RAP organisations:

  • Support a formal truth  telling process
  • Belief that a united Australia is possible.

In this reporting period:

  • 2,339,688 people worked or studied in an organisation with a RAP
  • $8,351,705,222 of goods and services were procured from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses.
