Reconciliation

Uluru Statement from the Heart

NeuRA is committed to incorporating the principles of equity, dignity and inclusion of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures.

We recognise the historical and ongoing inequities experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and we respect their diverse cultures and experiences.

Contributing towards reconciliation

We identified the development and implementation of a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) as a priority activity, to formalise NeuRA’s commitment to reconciliation and building a culturally safe, inclusive and respectful organisation.

Our RAP formalises existing efforts to incorporate the principles of equity, dignity and inclusion of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures by providing a strategic framework for action, and accountability.

NeuRA is dedicated to progressing national reconciliation efforts in Australia and upholding the vision of the 2017 Uluru Statement from the Heart.

This RAP represents NeuRA’s commitment to improving cultural safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples both within the organisation as well as in our interactions with the broader community. For over 10 years, NeuRA has been engaged in Aboriginal and Torres Islander health and ageing research with urban and regional communities and services across NSW and with other stakeholders nationally. Our work involves engagement, service outreach, formal partnerships and other collaborations with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. NeuRA’s current primary channel of partnership and engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities occurs through our Aboriginal Health and Ageing Program.

We recognise that the development of our RAP will be an ongoing and evolving process that requires continued engagement and consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples wherever we undertake our research,  as well as within the broader community.
