AMRRIC’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) articulates our commitment to closing the life expectancy gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and other Australians, and improving employment outcomes for Indigenous people in their communities. Our RAP has been signed off by Reconciliation Australia and will be officially launched in Darwin as part of the 2012 NAIDOC Week celebrations.

AMRRIC considers that its committment to reconciliation will be reflected through all the functions of AMRRIC not just specific program work. It will permeate our workplace, management style, governance, staffing decisions, organisational policy and proceedures, stake holder relationships, communications and the strategic plans we develop and implement.
AMRRIC develops its beliefs, practices and principles through everyday delivery of its projects and programs in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities across the country. Our relationships are developed and guided by our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island partners to identify the issues surrounding poor dog health
that affect the health of their communities. AMRRIC supports the development of programs and projects by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people and assists them to identify the resources to address their issues.
AMRRIC believes that Aborginal and Torres Strait Islander people are entitled to the same health, housing, animal management and employment opportunities that other Australians enjoy. AMRRIC believes that the 17 year gap between the life expectancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians must be closed before true reconciliation can be acheived.
We understand that we are enriched through our important relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people and we welcome opportunities to continue to learn and share experiences on the road to reconcilation.
