Our reconciliation commitments
Housing Choices Australia is committed to an equitable and safe society for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We believe this can only be achieved in a spirit of reconciliation between First Nations’ people and non-Indigenous Australians. Housing Choices Australia is making a genuine commitment through the development of a structured RAP, which maps our path to support reconciliation through building relationships, respect, opportunities and governance.Read our plan
Our vision for reconciliation is to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have homes and life opportunities they value, in neighbourhoods that are inclusive and resilient. We will do this through the housing we build, services we provide, workplaces we create and our support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and organisations.
Housing Choices Australia has a strong and genuine commitment to achieving the vision articulated in our Reconciliation Action Plan: that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have homes and life opportunities they value, in neighbourhoods that are inclusive and resilient.
We acknowledge and respect the decision of the Australian people in the referendum held on Saturday the 14th October. We remain steadfast in our resolve to stand alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as we work to improve housing outcomes.
The Housing Choices Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan represents our pledge to contribute to the social change needed to shape a tomorrow in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples share in an equitable, prosperous and rewarding future.
Housing Choices commenced its reconciliation journey in May 2021 with the formation of our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) Committee. In September 2021, our Reflect RAP was endorsed by Reconciliation Australia and we commenced working in earnest to embed reconciliation into our day-to-day work.
Two years on, Housing Choices working with Reconciliation Australia on the endorsement of our Innovate RAP. Through our Innovate RAP Housing Choices has made a commitment to building on the foundations of our Reflect RAP and delivering actions to achieve a more equitable society for First Nations people.
