We showcase and promote our work to each other and the wider community.

What is Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community control?
SNAICC supports the right for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families to control their own lives. Self-determination is enshrined in the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. SNAICC’s members are made up of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled organisations that work for childhood development, safety or wellbeing. Our full members have voting rights at our AGM.
An Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-owned and led organisation is owned, driven and empowered by the Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander community that empowers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to be involved in decision-making.
We encourage non-Indigenous and individual members to join SNAICC as associate members to strengthen our collective voice. All individual members will be an associate member.
