For the last 40 years, SNAICC – National Voice for our Children has been a passionate national voice representing the interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. Our work and role has never been more important and we look forward to a bright future working to build on the strengths and capabilities across our communities. Across our history, we have worked closely with others to drive change. And this need and opportunity remains ever present as we look to the future.
There remain a number of pressing issues impacting on outcomes, lives and communities. Despite ongoing reforms, current system responses are not working effectively to drive better outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. Looking forward, the new Closing the Gap Agreement provides a watershed moment to drive real and lasting change.
