Reconciliation Action Plan
OzChild is committed to actively supporting and taking steps toward achieving real reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and ensuring that the children in our care receive support that is both safe and culturally responsive.
OzChild’s journey to cultural competence has been guided by our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). This was implemented in 2017 to cement the organisations commitment to working alongside our Aboriginal and Torres Strait colleagues to support self-determination and ensure that we develop our practices in line with this learning to reduce the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in out-of-home foster care.
We are proud of the headway we have made in advancing reconciliation at OzChild. Our Innovate RAP focused on building our capability to support self-determination of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families, and communities. Our journey has not been without challenges and great learnings, giving us invaluable insight into the gaps that exist and what we can do to keep progressing.
Strong collaboration across departments, and the unrelenting support and guidance of our Dhiiyaan Mirri team has positioned us strongly for a Stretch journey, which we envisage will be marked by sustainable positive outcomes for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees, clients, and families. Proactive collective participation remains critical to achieving our RAP goals.
OzChild’s Stretch RAP will be released in early 2020.
