Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child and Family Centres are kicking goals, providing diverse responsive services to their community. This new fact sheet provides an update on the situation of funding for Aboriginal early years services. It also highlights three case studies on the amazing work of these Centres, and the impact they are having not only on the children in community, but also families and community development as a whole.
We are still awaiting the outcomes of the Productivity Commission report on early childhood education and care and the release of the Government’s Family Package. We hope these will include a strong program to enable these services to continue their critical work for chidlren and families in their communities.
