From our first steps of flying the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags, having Aboriginal artwork, and building an Indigenous garden, Banyule Community Health has been on a Reconciliation journey for a while. We have been guided by the local First Nations’ people along the way. This journey is a long term commitment to connect with, and to help close the gap in Indigenous health and wellbeing, to act locally in partnership with community.
Our First Nations’ and non-Indigenous workforce, our local community members, the Board, and senior management have decided now is the right time for Banyule Community Health to develop our first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). This draft plan has been developed over the past 6 months led by Karen Milward (Aboriginal Consultant), staff, and community leaders.
We will join lots of other organisations in partnering with Reconciliation Australia on our RAP, to hold ourselves accountable to the community, and to influence our 350 staff, 140 volunteers, community and organisational partnerships and funding bodies to orient towards Reconciliation.
We value your opinion and feedback, so please take a few moments to review this 1-page summary of actions, outlining our commitments in our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (2022- 2024).
I welcome your feedback.
Please forward feedback via email: email@example.com by 30 April 2022.
