Our Reconciliation Journey
In September 2019, as Compass Housing Services, we developed our first “Reflect’ Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) from aspirations to deliver our housing services in culturally appropriate and safe ways to our First Nations residents.
Regrettably, the COVID-19 pandemic quickly frustrated our ability to meet with partners and our residents and many of the intentions of that first RAP were unfulfilled.
Taking the opportunity to revitalise our approach, in 2021 we established a new internal RAP Workgroup and in early 2022 engaged with Everywhen consultancy to guide us through the development of a new Vision and a further Reflect RAP to take us to the next stage of this vital journey for the organisation.
Our RAP Vision
Our RAP Vision is to create an environment where meaningful connection occurs between our organisation and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, families and individuals.
We support this vision of reconciliation through everyday behaviours that reflect our commitment to cultural safety.
We find opportunities to prioritise First Nations engagement through employment, leadership and supplier diversity, co-creating a culture of authentic partnerships and co-designed housing solutions.
Our 2023-24 Reflect RAP
Home in Place supports the national reconciliation movement and has developed our 2023-24 Reflect RAP to contribute to reconciliation within our organisation, within the communities in which we operate and the broader Australian community.
