Subiaco Launches Second RAP
- Tuesday, 28 May 2013
The Subiaco Football Club and District's second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) has been officially launched at its most recent game against Perth on the 18th May. Stemming on from success of its first one, Subiaco have again used the RAP to turn good intentions into real actions.
Subiaco FC still remains the only WAFL club to have active RAP in place.
Subiaco District Manager Ben Haywood said “Subiaco continues to lead the way in this area and is making a real difference in its community”.
Subiaco Football Club CEO Peter Capes said: “Developing our second RAP has again given us a great opportunity to improve our involvement with Indigenous Australians; based on a framework of mutual respect and partnership,”
Subiaco sees its commitment being delivered in three key areas:
1. Provide and promote opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people’s participation
2. Develop genuine Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islands partnerships through engagement, consultation, communication and negotiation.
3. Establish new ways to ensure that we gain the appropriate knowledge and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island
“I’m confident that this plan will continue to see the Subiaco Football Club make a real difference to all Indigenous Australians that participate in our great game in the Subiaco District both in the metropolitan area but also in our Regional zones,” Mr Haywood Said
The Subiaco Football Club and District joins a growing community of organizations across all sectors implementing Reconciliation Action Plans, a program that was developed by Reconciliation Australia.
Reconciliation Australia’s Group Manager—Programs and Projects Sharona Torrens said: “Subiaco’s second RAP builds on the milestones achieved in its first one whilst still having a strong focus on improving the relationships between Subiaco and its Indigenous community. From here we look forward to working with the club and district to ensure its actions are carried out and its measures are achieved.
