Reconciliation Victoria works with an independent network of Local Reconciliation Groups, throughout both metropolitan and regional Victoria who promote cultural awareness, understanding and education in their local communities. LRGs serve an important purpose in the Victorian landscape and are often the local go-to-group in many metro and regional local government areas.
The people who participate in LRGs are strongly committed to reconciliation and work hard to build and maintain positive relationships and friendships with First Peoples. LRGs are strong advocates and allies with a high-level of respect and regard for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history.
This makes LRGs an important stakeholder for organisations developing Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) or strategies. LRGs are great at brokering relationships and collectively work to influence reconciliation progress, and hold RAP organisations accountable for their RAP actions, deliverables, and commitments.
If there isn't a group in your area and you would like to set one up, Reconciliation Victoria has created a Start Up Guide to support you, available here.
