The safety and wellbeing of Aboriginal children and young people is a priority for everyone. We recognise we need to improve our engagement practices and work in partnership with Aboriginal communities to ensure less Aboriginal children come into care and stay safe within their family community, culture and country.

Engaging with Aboriginal communities, and stakeholders is key to improving outcomes for Aboriginal children and families. To make this change implementation of the Family is Culture recommendations will require ongoing engagement

Where possible, engagement will take place face-to-face in a COVID safe way. However, where appropriate, some engagement may still take place via virtual platforms.

We welcome your thoughts and ideas on how we can best engage with the community. We can be contacted at: familyisculture@facs.nsw.gov.au
