The Cultural Support Plan Template and Guide will assist and support Child Protection workers in ensuring that they keep Aboriginal children and young people connected to their family, community and culture.
The benefit of the Cultural Support Plan is that you include all children (those who have been placed in
Out of Home Care together or separately). This enables workers to gain a full understanding of where all the children in the family are. It also enables those children who haven’t been placed to continue to have contact and connections with their siblings. Given the importance of ‘family’ within the Aboriginal2 community, this is a crucial factor.
