SNAICC CEO resigns – organisation remains focused on vital support for children
SNAICC – National Voice for Our Children CEO Angela Singh tendered her resignation yesterday, following charges made against her partner and pressures from some sections of the community to reconsider her position within the organisation in light of the charges.
SNAICC recognised Ms Singh for her “long and decorated career working to ensure children are safe and have every opportunity to thrive” saying she should be recognised for her achievements and her strengths.
Ms Singh, a spokesperson for the organisation said, “made a valuable contribution to SNAICC’s work.”
As recruitment for her replacement takes place, SNAICC emphasised that the organisation’s number one priority is the safety of children.
“We have been advocating for the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children for almost 40 years. We will continue to take an unwavering position in condemning all forms of violence and abuse against children,” a statement on its website read.
With the relevant matter before the court, SNAICC will not make any further comment at this stage, turning focus instead to National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day and the 8th SNAICC National Conference in particular.
