Reconciliation Action Plan

About the plan

On 8 July 2016 the four parliamentary departments — the Department of the House of Representatives, the Department of the Senate, the Department of Image of Australian parliamentary service staff holding copies of the Reconciliation Action PlanParliamentary Services and the Parliamentary Budget Office — launched their second joint Reconciliation Action Plan.

Reconciliation Action Plans, or RAPs, are business plans that set out practical initiatives to build stronger relationships and enhanced respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians and help foster equality by supporting improved opportunities.

This second RAP, which has been endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, outline what the four parliamentary departments will do to be more actively involved in the journey of reconciliation and to play our part in closing the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.

In consultation with Reconciliation Australia, the four parliamentary departments are in the process of drafting the third Australian Parliamentary Service RAP. The second RAP continues to operate until the third RAP is finalised.
