This year’s theme for National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day was Proud in Culture, Strong in Spirit. As with all Australian children, it is important for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to be able to maintain strong connections to their family, community, culture and Country.

 

Too often though, child protection systems seemingly lack the understanding of, or deprioritise, cultural connection. This can have negative consequences for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in out-of-home care.

 

This webinar will explore how children thrive in systems that recognise the strengths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

 

Together, we can build a future where all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children have the opportunities to grow up safe in their families, strong in their identities, and connected to their cultures.
