Together we are one voice
By becoming a SNAICC member you join the chorus of Australians speaking up for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. SNAICC is only as strong as our membership; the more members we have, the louder our voice can be!
Why be a member?
As a peak national body, we provide a platform for our members so we can have a stronger voice in influencing laws, policy and processes to improve outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.
As part of the SNAICC community, you have access to best practice through our policy briefs, resources, communications tools and sector development processes.
We showcase and promote our work to each other and the wider community.
We share a sense of community through events such as National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day and the SNAICC National Conference.
We value expertise from our services and supporters, including knowledge of pressing community needs and community-led strategies that see our children grow up healthy and strong.
