OUR JOURNEY TOWARD RECONCILIATION
Housing Choices Australia is committed to building a culturally competent and safe organisation for our staff, residents and partners. In April 2019, Housing Choices Australia established its Reconciliation Action Plan Committee. The RAP Committee is a multi-disciplinary and geographically dispersed team with representatives from the executive, management and staff.

The Committee has demonstrated a strong commitment to exploring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and experiences and developed a Vision Statement to reflect their learnings and commitment to reconciliation. The Vision Statement, which was endorsed by the Board in November 2019, seeks to recognise the traumatic history and continued disenfranchisement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and provides a high-level overview of how Housing Choices Australia will contribute to reconciliation nationally. Building on the Vision Statement, the Committee has worked collaboratively to develop a Reflect RAP that demonstrates our dedication to reconciliation and that will enable us to embed the foundations of cultural competency into our organisation, provides a set of clear, measurable deliverables that will hold us accountable to our commitments and will enable us to plan for our Innovate RAP.
