Summary
  • 'Family Matters - Strong communities, Strong Culture, Stronger Children' is a national campaign to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people in Australia grow up safe and cared for in family, community and culture. A key aim is to eliminate the over-representation of Indigenous kids in out-of-home care. The Family Matters Report series will measure both the extent of the problem as well as progress towards implementing evidence-informed solutions. This is the third report, presenting new information on the current situation and trends, projected growth to 2037, state and territory responses, the economic and social factors driving child protection involvement, access to culturally safe universal and targeted services, compliance with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle, cultural planning, and resourced and legislated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation. A particular emphasis in this 2018 edition is prevention and intervention in the early years. The report finds that though the states and territories have made significant shifts in legislation and policy, the outcomes for families have only become worse and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families continue to be grossly over-represented in child protection and out of home care. Note, the New South Wales government did not provide its update on strategies in time for analysis within the main body of the report, so it is included separately at the end of the report.
