PANDA's Reconciliation Action Plan

PANDA is proud to embrace and celebrate Australia’s First Nations culture.

PANDA work collaboratively to enhance the mental health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, understanding the significant impact trauma and loss has had on their wellbeing since colonisation.

PANDA aims to engage in reconciliation activities that continue to build our capacity to support First Nations people. We also commit to nurturing First Nations parents, bubs, families and communities through the programs and support we deliver every day.

Having a RAP is very important to PANDA. It formalises the work we do to
respectfully and meaningfully engage and partner with First Nations families, organisations, and stakeholders.

We commit to:

  • Building long-lasting mutually beneficial relationships with First Nations organisations.
  • Educating our team about reconciliation and First Nations people and culture.
  • Improving social and health outcomes for First Nations people and Closing the Gap on inequity.
  • Ensuring we deliver our RAP commitments and embed reconciliation within PANDA’s
