Reconciliation

Our shared journey

At Allinto, we value and celebrate diversity and inclusion, recognising the innovation and service quality it brings. Our unwavering focus remains on ensuring equal human rights for all people who need our support, making each individual feel valued and respected.

Our first RAP symbolises our dedication to reconciliation, reflecting our optimism for a better future and our ongoing pursuit of improved service through diverse perspectives and continuous learning.

The RAP Working Group comprises of 16 members and has enabled collaboration across the Allinto by encouraging representation from each of the entities.

In co-operation with Reconciliation Australia, Allinto has developed its first Reflect RAP which was approved in April 2024.

The first Group Reflect RAP helps establish foundations for relationships, culturally appropriate resources, and training to enhance cultural competence. It fosters growth and reconciliation, with appreciation for guidance from First Nations peoples and the RAP Working Group.

The artwork beautifully represents our engagement with various communities, fostering connections, and promoting values that tie individuals to their surroundings and fellow human beings. It communicates the essence of our work and the significance of collaboration and shared values in creating a positive impact.

Our vision for reconciliation

To recognise and respect the rich history and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, we commit to meaningful connections that celebrate healing, promote safety and inclusive opportunity.

  • Our commitment to reconciliation – we are committed to reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  • Community engagement and trust – build trust and rapport with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities by actively engaging with them in the development and implementation of initiatives that address their needs and aspirations.
  • Enhanced service delivery – by understanding and addressing the specific needs and cultural contexts of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, we can improve the effectiveness and cultural appropriateness of our services, supports and programs.
  • Corporate social responsibility – engaging in reconciliation efforts aligns with our commitment to social justice and equity and ensures we provide culturally aware and safe care to our customers, and their families.
