Reconciliation Action Plan
The AASW is deeply committed to reconciliation, and our Reconciliation Action Plans are important steps in our reconciliation journey.
Reconciliation Action Plan 2013-16
The AASW's first RAP, launched at the AGM on 23 November 2013, recognises the special place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians. It also demonstrates respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing, being and doing through incorporation into social work theory and practice.
The RAP sets out to facilitate social workers becoming better informed about working with First Australians to achieve the provision of culturally competent, safe and sensitive practice.
