NOFASD Australia developed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in 2020

NOFASD Australia developed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in 2020. A RAP working group was established to include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-indigenous participants, as well as a NOFASD board member, staff member and individuals with lived experience of FASD.

 The RAP working group commenced with the first level Reconciliation Action Plan, a Reflect RAP. NOFASD’s Reflect RAP focuses within the organisation, building staff knowledge and workplace cultures as well as providing a roadmap towards developing and building upon relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders. The Reflect RAP sets out the initial steps to prepare NOFASD to move on to successive RAPs. The RAP working group hope to progress to an Innovate RAP in 2021/2022.

We were delighted to receive approval and endorsement for the first NOFASD Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan during NAIDOC Week 2021 from Reconciliation Australia. Our RAP has started to be embedded into our working practises, seeing workplace recognition of Sorry Day, Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC week.

The NOFASD team look forward to continuing to work towards reconciliation in Australia as we collaborate with Aboriginal parents, carers, researchers and health professionals to ensure that we are being culturally sensitive, culturally responsive and being led by experts in the field.
