About our fourth RAP
SVA has a vision for an Australia where all people and communities thrive.
We believe this can be achieved when all Australians are empowered, have a voice in decisions that impact them, have a sense of belonging and experience social inclusion. SVA believes that belonging for all Australians requires, and is enabled through, specific recognition and respect of First Nations knowledge, histories and cultures.
This is SVA’s fourth RAP. It has been informed by the learnings from our previous three plans, alongside advice from internal and external First Nations stakeholders.
Through this RAP we seek to strengthen our vision for reconciliation, acknowledging our role as an intermediary who works with First Nations communities and organisations, and with influential stakeholders across the business, government and social purpose sectors.
We are pleased to share our fourth Reconciliation Action Plan as part of our work towards a reconciled Australia.
