Reconciliation Peer Network

The Reconciliation Peer Network (RecNet) is an informal group designed to bring together ACT community organisations who are interested in reconciliation, including the process of developing and implementing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

RecNet works towards developing respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The network provides an opportunity for organisations to share and learn from each other and to develop partnerships for future collaboration on events and activities that develop relationships, show respect, and increase opportunities for organisations and individuals to take action to overcome the causes of divisions between and different social and economic outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and others living in the ACT.

Many organisations have shown their commitment to reconciliation by developing a RAP. The network offers an opportunity for organisations to collaborate with others to achieve goals set out in their RAP.

Organisations starting their reconciliation journey are also encouraged to connect with the network and may be interested in downloading the Cultural Awareness Self-Assessment Toolkit from the ACTCOSS website as a first step.
