Reconciliation Action Plan 2017-2019
This is NACLC’s second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). The first was developed in 2012 (NACLC Reconciliation Action Plan 2012-15 (pdf)) for a three-year period. One of the key achievements of the first RAP was the development and inclusion of mandatory cultural safety standards under the National Accreditation Scheme. NACLC worked hard to implement all actions identified in its first Reconciliation Action Plan, and where actions were not fully implemented they have been incorporated into this second Reconciliation Action Plan. As part of developing this second Reconciliation Action Plan, NACLC has reﬂected on ways to more closely monitor and implement actions and incorporated these into the actions.
NACLC acknowledges and accepts the role it should and must play in working towards Reconciliation Australia’s and NACLC's own vision for reconciliation in Australia. NACLC has a particular role to play in protecting and promoting the human rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and ensuring they are treated fairly and equitably before the law. NACLC is committed to ensuring this RAP, is a meaningful and living document that guides and informs NACLC's governance, processes and work.

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
