The Safe Steps Reconciliation Action Plan contains a range of practical activities to build better understandings, meaningful relationships, and stronger self-determination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The RAP sits alongside our strategic plan which highlights Safe Step’s strong commitment to inclusion and diversity and to walk alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are survivors of domestic and family violence. Safe Steps is committed to improving access to our services, and the way we engage and work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as clients, colleagues and in communities.

Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Victoria, the land on which our services are delivered. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their culture, and Elders, past and present. We acknowledge the First Peoples’ right to self-determination and their continuing connection to lands, waters and communities.
