Metropolitan Reconciliation Action Committee

The St Vincent de Paul Society NSW launched our first Reconciliation Action Plan in February 2018. In progressing this work, we are committed to being guided by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities and organisations on the best means to advance reconciliation.   

With the assistance of Reconciliation Australia, the RAP details the Society’s commitments and key actions under three priority areas – Respect, Relationships and Opportunities.  

A State-wide Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group has been established to oversee implementation of key actions within each of these priority areas. The Metropolitan Regional RAP Committee has been established to support local implementation of the Vinnies NSW Reconciliation Action Plan and related activities.  The Metropolitan RAP committee has representation from various areas of Vinnies, including Membership representation from Broken Bay Central Council, Greater Western Sydney Central Council and Sydney Central Council. 

Please contact SJ Rep Michelle,Fonti@vinnies.org.au or John.Ferguson1@vinnies.org.au for further details.
