Reconciliation Action Plan – Reflect

SensesWA would like to present our inaugural (Reflect) Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2021, the beginning of what will become a long-term commitment to making SensesWA a culturally safe and inclusive organisation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients, employees, and other stakeholders.

SensesWA’s decision to develop a Reflect RAP recognises the significance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australian culture, history and identity and the local community in which we operate.  As a major service provider within Western Australia, the development of a RAP is considered a necessary element in ensuring the provision of services to the community generally that are culturally safe, appropriate and meets their needs.  Through this RAP we wish to:

  • Build a broad base of knowledge and skills for employees to engage confidently and respectfully with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their historical/cultural material;
  • Develop a strategy for engaging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to ensure we provide culturally appropriate services and facilities;
  • Improve access to services and programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability; and
  • Create a framework for talking with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients and stakeholders about shared interests and activities.

This can only be achieved through organisational learning and growth in this regard.
