Reconciliation Action Plan
This Reconciliation Action Plan was developed to be a priority in our 2012/15 Strategic Plan. The goals listed in our Reconciliation Action Plan have been identified and brainstormed through a collaborative process. Advice and feedback has been sought from a variety of internal and external stakeholders. NACLC has endeavoured to list clear targets that can be easily measured when we review our progress. On a number of issues where NACLC desires change but do yet not have a specific action planned, we have still listed the issue to show our intention to progress in these areas over the reporting period. From 2012 we will be incorporating our Reconciliation Action Plan into our Annual Work Plan.

What is a Reconciliation Action Plan?
According to Reconciliation Australia a Reconciliation Action Plan has the following aims:
- to be a tool to help your organisation build positive relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people
- to give you a format for exploring how reconciliation can advance your organisational objectives
- to show your public contribution towards the national effort to close the 17-year life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous children
- to formalises your contribution by encouraging you to identify clear actions and realistic targets, as well as lessons learnt
- to include a creative blend of relationships, respect and opportunities
