The Reconciliation Action Plan (PDF 1.2MB) focuses on the steps the department will take to deliver the government's policies and programs to better engage with Aboriginal Australians.
It brings together the key initiatives the department will undertake to support reconciliation as a means of improving the outcomes of Aboriginal people.
The plan aims to help build trust, effective relationships and a sense of belonging and identity for Aboriginal people. It aims to foster and express respect for the role of Aboriginal traditional land owners and their cultures.
The department is committed to helping improve the lives of Aboriginal South Australians through care, education and training. The gap in educational and life outcomes currently experienced by Aboriginal South Australians is well recognised and reducing this gap is a national government priority.
The department recognises that true reconciliation will only exist when all Aboriginal children, young people, and employees can reach their full potential and enjoy the same opportunities and quality of life that all South Australians expect.
