Reconciliation Action Plan
The Sydney Roosters Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is the Club's formal plan to advance reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians. The plan outlines the Sydney Roosters vision for reconciliation and is endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, the lead body for reconciliation in Australia. Under Reconciliation Australia's RAP framework guidelines, the plan sets measurable targets under three pillars of engagement including Relationships, Respect and Opportunities.
The Sydney Roosters developed its first RAP to support and advance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities and organisations within our sphere of influence. The Club has a deep history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players, the most famous being Roosters Legend Arthur Beetson, the first Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander to Captain Australia, whose legacy still lives on at the Roosters.
Our RAP has been endorsed by Reconciliation Australia at 'Reflect' level, which highlights the first stage in our commitment to the reconciliation journey. The plan echoes our desire to produce meaningful, mutually beneficial and sustainable relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and organisations.
Our Reflect RAP aims to develop existing relationships with current partners and to build on new partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and organisations.
The RAP forms part of the Club's wider Indigenous strategy and demonstrates the Roosters' commitment to developing and implementing engaging approaches to reconciliation and advocating it throughout the organisation.
