Our Vision for Reconciliation is the elimination of housing inequity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We will work alongside First Nations Peoples to build communities, spaces, and homes. We do this by creating a foundation for opportunity through delivering culturally appropriate housing, providing pathways for employment, education, and wellbeing.
We believe that Reconciliation is everyone’s responsibility, and we commit to the celebration of our shared histories, cultures and diversity through mutual respect and empowering self-determination.
Argyle Housing is developing this RAP to recognise and build on current relationships, to further demonstrate our respect for First Nations Peoples in all aspects of our business, and to purposely set out an aspirational framework of measurable goals and achievable actions to guide our journey of reconciliation and recognition.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Argyle Housing will champion the organisation’s RAP ensuring the continuous development of relationships with First Nations peoples and practices in our workplace and the communities we work with. Within their roles, our CEO and General Manager – Asset Management and Growth, engage and build relationships with local First Nations Peoples and organisations to assist in the project management of culturally sensitive projects.
Prior to beginning the process of building an Innovate RAP, Argyle Housing’s Reflect RAP was reviewed. Positive outcomes were celebrated, and key learnings have been taken on board to inform the Innovate RAP.
