At Corporate Protection, our commitment to indigenous training and employment is outlined as part of our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and we commit to achieving our stated objectives – we do not just talk about reconciliation, our actions match our words.
We proudly are 1 of only 23 Qld based private sector organisations that have a Stretch RAP, endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, and the only Medical, Emergency Services, Security & Training company, that has one.
The Plan details our commitment and plans to promote reconciliation between First Australians and broader Australia within our organisation, our business and the wider community. Reconciliation Australia formally endorsed Corporate Protection’s inaugural Innovate RAP in December 2018.
One initiative that we are extremely proud of is the result of an agreement with the University of the Sunshine Coast to fund two bursaries each year supporting undergraduate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
One bursary is awarded to a student enrolled at USC Moreton Bay and one bursary is awarded to a student enrolled at USC Sippy Downs.
The 2023 recipients have been announced and they have very kindly written to express their appreciation and talk about how much this support means.
There was truly no need to thank us, we are very proud to assist and wish our two recipients every success in their ongoing academic commitments.
Corporate Protection Indigenous Ambassador, Lorraine Hatton, OAM : ‘At Corporate Protection, we are extremely proud of this initiative – it provides valuable support to the recipients and is very much appreciated as can be seen by the letters of appreciation from this year’s two students’
