We are proud to launch our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.
This is our strategic document detailing clear actions to drive our contribution to reconciliation both internally and in the communities in which we operates.
A RAP Program contributes to advancing five key dimensions of reconciliation to develop respectful relationships and create meaningful opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. These five dimensions are historical acceptance; race relations; equality and equity; institutional integrity and unity. Each of these five dimensions are interrelated and cannot exist in isolation.
An innovate RAP outlines KDH’s focus and commitment to developing and strengthening relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, engaging staff and stakeholders in reconciliation and developing and piloting innovative strategies to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Thanks go to Reconciliation Australia for their support in developing our RAP. We know this is the beginning of a long and worthwhile journey. We look forward to working with Reconciliation Australia and to building stronger relationships with community.
An official launch will be celebrated when restrictions permit. Date to be advised.
Kilmore District Health (KDH) acknowledges all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we walk, live and work. We pay our respects to Traditional Custodians past, present and future. KDH stands on the land of the Taungurung people. We want to acknowledge their custodianship of this land and honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ acts of resistance in the face of ongoing colonial oppression on land that has never been ceded.
We wish to acknowledge Elders from other communities that we serve including Wurundjeri people and Dja Dja people. In addition we acknowledge Elders from the many other communities who work, live and visit in the area on which KDH works and serves.
