Reconciliation Action Plan
Gold Coast Titans Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan
The Gold Coast Titans have developed this Stretch RAP to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to recognising and celebrating the contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to the organisation during the Club’s history.
By establishing this RAP, the Club aims to further engage with the community and to further educate groups and individuals on reconciliation. In turn, our aim is that the Gold Coast community and wider Australia acknowledge the importance of reconciliation and its five dimensions. The Gold Coast Titans encourage other organisations to create a RAP and work toward a reconciled and equitable Australia.
The Gold Coast Titans hold strong relationships with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations such as the Preston Campbell Foundation and Deadly Choices. Through our work with these organisations and local Elders, we will continue to develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement strategies and partnerships for community empowerment. This RAP signifies our intention to focus on improving health and educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through delivery of specially designed programs and workshops in our catchment region. The Gold Coast is situated on the land of the Kombumerri people who speak Yugambeh language.
Development of the RAP has been led by the Club’s Community General Manager Renee Cohen, Community Digital and Partnerships Coordinator Gaby Barns and Community Programs and Development Officer Matthew Ash.
The working group engaged with a wide range of external organisations and individuals to help develop the RAP. Ongoing advice was provided to the working group by representatives from each department at the Gold Coast Titans, including the playing group.
