Relationships key to creating sustainable opportunities
Each year, the RAP Impact Measurement Report evaluates the collective impact of the RAP program.
The 2012 Report compared findings in the 2012 Australian Reconciliation Barometer revealing that people in RAP organisations are more likely to think the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians is important to the nation. Together, our RAP community is taking more action to advance reconciliation.
