Whitehorse Reconciliation Advisory Committee

The Whitehorse Reconciliation Advisory Committee is a Council committee that oversees the development and implementation of the Reconciliation Action Plan. The Whitehorse Reconciliation Advisory Committee consists of Aboriginal people, service providers, community representatives, government departments, and other organisations. 

The purpose of the Whitehorse Reconciliation Advisory Committee is:

  • To provide Council with strategic advice on recognition and reconciliation issues relating to initiatives, services, activities, functions and facilities
  • To ensure that the Reconciliation Action Plan remains relevant to the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, Whitehorse City Council and the broader community. 

The current committee members were endorsed by Council in February 2012 to represent Whitehorse City Council for the period 2012-2015. The members of the committee are involved in many activities and networks across the region and therefore have a great understanding of the impact the work of the committee has at the regional level and beyond.
