Innovate RAP making an impact two years on


Hi friends,

In December 2020, The Salvation Army Australia Territory launched its first Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which focused on implementing strategies and initiatives that promote action towards reconciliation as a movement and across our sphere of influence.


As we mark two years on from the launch of the Innovate RAP, it’s with great pride that I celebrate with you the fantastic progress we have made and reflect on the journey we have walked together.


Captain Stuart Glover, Secretary for Mission. 

The Innovate RAP has allowed us to dive deeper into our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their culture, lived experiences and traditions. It has also allowed us as a movement to strengthen our relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities by piloting new initiatives that promote engagement and empowerment.

I am very proud to write this message of celebration and gratitude for your contribution to the two successful years of meeting the 89 deliverables we set out to achieve in 2020. I encourage you to take some time to read more about some of the initiatives on Salvos Central here >>

“Our journey towards reconciliation as a movement has brought new learnings, as well as a deeper level of respect and understanding for our First Nations brothers and sisters. The Innovate RAP has played a crucial role in this journey and I’m encouraged by the ongoing individual commitment our personnel have made to walk this path together.” - Commissioner Miriam Gluyas

However, there is some unfinished business from our Innovate RAP, which we aim to prioritise in the coming years through a Stretch RAP. Through the Innovate RAP, we have developed a framework to help us create long-term strategies and define measurable targets for advancing reconciliation internally and in our communities.


Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to walking the journey of reconciliation with us.


Grace and peace,


Captain Stuart Glover Secretary for Mission
