Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan

Following the Cultural Reflections Survey conducted in 2020, it was recommended that Nillumbik Shire Council develop a Reflect RAP.

Nillumbik Shire Council’s Reflect RAP will have a 12 month lifespan. It will outline the shared approach Council will take to progress reconciliation and work alongside all Aboriginal people in Council’s services.

The RAP is our formal commitment to support First Nations peoples’ rights, culture, heritage, needs and aspirations.

Thank you to those who provided input to help inform the development of the draft RAP.

Feedback is now closed.

Next steps

Council officers will collate all the feedback received during consultation and this will be considered when preparing the draft Reconciliation Action Plan.

We will continue to work in close consultation with Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Elders.

Timings for consultation on the draft RAP is yet to be determined.

Engagement methods

This Community Engagement Plan forms Phase 2 of the Nillumbik Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) Framework, and will lead to the development of a draft RAP document (Phase 3).

The period of Phase 2 Community Engagement for the Nillumbik Reflect RAP from Monday 6 March 2023 – Sunday 23 April 2023.

Throughout this period Council staff will engage with key internal and external stakeholders, as well as the broader Nillumbik community.

The draft RAP Community Engagement Plan has been developed in consultation with Indigenous Employment Partners (IEP).

IEP were a 100% Indigenous owned and managed enterprise who were engaged as consultants by the Nillumbik Shire Council to support the development of the RAP. (Note that IEP has ceased operation effective as of November 2022)
