Aboriginal Engagement Strategy

Media Release 3 April 2013

The City of South Perth’s Aboriginal Engagement Strategy was endorsed by Council at the March 2013 meeting. This living and working document will be implemented by the City and community to assist in ‘closing the gap’, plus build on relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people within our community.

In 2009 as part of the Our Vision ahead community engagement process, the local community identified a desire for the City to look at developing a Reconciliation Action Plan.

The Aboriginal Engagement Strategy has been developed over a two year period by a working group made up of Aboriginal/Noongar community representatives, general community members and City staff.  Working together to ‘create a City for everyone’, the group shared knowledge, experiences , culture and skills to foster relationships and produce the Aboriginal Engagement Strategy.
