Reconciliation Action Plan


Our vision for reconciliation is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities to have access to a high standard of reproductive and sexual health services which are delivered with respect and recognition of the cultural needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Furthermore, we want our centres to continue to be welcoming, safe and inclusive for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients, visitors and staff.

Family Planning NSW cultivates meaningful relationships and connections with the land various communities that our different centres dwell on. We continue to pay our respects to the Traditional Owners and their Elders of these lands and recognise that we are visitors here, with a purpose through the work we do to actively join the reconciliation ethos through our attitudes, services and partnerships.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Our second Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2022-2024 was developed to further advance our commitment to reconciliation, setting clear actions for the next two years to ensure the work we do is respectful, safe and inclusive for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals and communities. We are committed to working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in improving the reproductive and sexual health outcomes across NSW.

Our 2022-2024 areas of focus include:

  • advancing the cultural competency of Family Planning NSW staff
  • increasing employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the organisation
  • enhancing clinical partnership opportunities with Aboriginal Medical Services
  • strengthening the evaluation and accountability of our work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

Innovate RAP 2018-2020

Family Planning NSW proudly launched its first RAP in 2018 which solidified our existing commitment to reconciliation. Over the two period, our RAP Working Group achieved significant milestones of change for the organisation including:

  • the introduction of organisation-wide Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Training for all staff
  • the development of an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment and Retention Strategy
  • implementation of the Aboriginal Health Impact Statement in all health promotion projects
  • establishment of outreach clinics in Western New South Wales (NSW)
  • the addition of Supplier Diversity into our Purchasing Procedure
  • increasing procurement with Aboriginal owned supply nation certified businesses.

Family Planning NSW would like to thank members of the RAP working group for their efforts in the development of the document, as well as the Aboriginal men's and women's advisory groups for their continued support.
