Social Futures are inviting Expressions of Interest to establish our RAP Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Advisory Panel. Self-nominations are now open using the form at the bottom of this page or by calling us. Applications close 20th December 2021.
Social Futures works to create positive social change in strong communities where people thrive. We believe that reconciliation is everyone’s business.
At Social Futures, a significant proportion of our participants identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and require us to be culturally aware and competent. Our staff overwhelmingly support reconciliation. Social Futures wants to be clear about contributing to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and being tangible and accountable to our goals and achievements.
Can you help inform our way?
Social Futures supports children, young people, families & communities to live their best lives. We care about the people we work with and we are learning together, but we know we don’t always get it right.
We recognise more needs to be done to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to heal from past injustice and inequality. As a service provider in your community, we recognise that we have a part to play and we want to do it well, alongside community as a two way learning journey.
Join our RAP Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Advisory Panel!
We are looking for 10-12 members from interested Elders, Community members and External Stakeholders (Service Providers and Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations) across the regional NSW and SE Qld.
You can either:
1) Use the Expressions of Interest form at the bottom of this page, or

Applications close 20th December 2021
