Social Futures Launches its First Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

Social Futures took a big stride along the road to reconciliation with the launch of its inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) at Lismore City Hall on Wednesday 30 May.

Pre-launch celebrations were also held at our Grafton and Tweed Heads offices on 29 May.

More than 100 guests and staff attended the event which included a smoking ceremony and Welcome to Country by Uncle Roy Gordon.

Uncle Ken Morgan shared stories of the five decades of educational support he and his wife Carol have provided to Aboriginal children all over Australia. We were also honoured to have Uncle Reg King attend.

Community Engagement Officer Kylie Maunder spoke with conviction about her two years working with Social Futures, the challenges of reconciliation and her hopes for the future. Entertainment by Jodi Law and Billy Smith really contributed to the atmosphere and everyone was treated to great food by Twisted Tucker. It was heartening that partners in the sector and local government showed their support by attending, with genuine interest in strengthening connections.

CEO Tony Davies explained that the launch of our RAP is just the beginning and there is much consultation, relationship building and work to be done as the organisation moves forward.

“A huge thanks for your input, hard work and support for our RAP launch events on Tuesday and Wednesday,” Tony said.

“It has been a long journey (over two years in the making) and is such an important step for us.  I have really enjoyed the conversations over the past few days and look forward to many more.”
