The Association for Services to Torture and Trauma Survivors (ASeTTS) is proud to announce our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) has been officially endorsed by Reconciliation Australia.
In 2021, we commenced our RAP journey to formalise our commitment to Australia’s First Peoples. A RAP Working Group was established with 8 members of staff from across the organisation in consultation with senior management, the board and ASeTTS staff and community.
In developing our Reflect RAP, the working group acknowledged our limited connections with First Nations Australians, both within our organisation and in the broader community. The group also recognised that First Nations Australians are still fighting for the recognition of their rights in every aspect of their lives, including their rights in the workplace; and that implementing this RAP will support ASeTTS to build our knowledge of and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.
The RAP will also support us to create a welcoming, safe and supportive workplace for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; and provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with opportunities to grow and succeed within our organisation.
The implementation of our RAP will be led by our Mental Health Promotion and Training Coordinator and the Working Group will be responsible for delivering the RAP.
ASeTTS looks forward to strengthening our relationships with Australia’s First Peoples, both within our organisation and externally.
