New South Wales Reconciliation Council (NSWRC) is the peak representative body for Reconciliation in New South Wales. We are a membership based organisation, made up of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians working to promote united communities and to address the ‘unfinished business’ of reconciliation – recognition of rights, promotion of economic independence and social justice for Indigenous people.
NSW Reconciliation Council raises awareness and understanding of reconciliation and Indigenous issues, advocates for social justice, equity and Indigenous Rights and grows and supports the people's movement for reconciliation.
NSW Reconciliation Council (NSWRC) was formed in 1997 as part of a local, state and national structure to support the legislated process of reconciliation. First known as the NSW State Reconciliation Committee (SRC) and chaired by Linda Burney, the Committee provided a bridge between communities and government in the development of reconciliation initiatives in NSW.
NSWRC is governed by an eight member Management Committee, elected annually at the Annual General Meeting by members.
