Have Your Say: Reconciliation Action Plan
Mornington Peninsula Shire invites the community to provide thoughts on the Shire’s new Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
Through the implementation of the Reconciliation Action Plan, the Shire aims to build on relationships, respect and trust between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australians living on the Mornington Peninsula.
Reconciliation is about
Mornington Peninsula Shire is developing a new Reconciliation Action Plan to strengthen reconciliation on the Mornington Peninsula. The plan will build on the achievements in the Shire’s existing Reconciliation Policy and Action plan including:
Sponsorship of a number of significant Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander events such as Reconciliation week, NAIDOC week, MABO Day, Anniversary of the Apology
Supporting local Aboriginal business
Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners
Culture Awareness and Respect Training for Shire staff
The Shire’s RAP will include practical actions to drive our contribution to reconciliation both internally and in the community.
