SNAICC is undertaking a new project to identify good practice examples of early intervention and prevention work led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations. This work is funded by the Department of Social Services to support priorities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children under the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children. The purpose of this work is to:
- increase support for and resourcing of good practice Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander led prevention approaches
- increase engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families with culturally safe and appropriate support services
- promote improved compliance with the prevention element of the ATSICPP across all jurisdictions.
To achieve this, SNAICC is seeking expressions of interest from Aboriginal community-controlled organisations that are implementing good practice early intervention and prevention initiatives targeted for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. Once good practice examples are identified, SNAICC will work in partnership with organisations to develop a detailed profile of each program example.
Good practice examples will be showcased nationally via SNAICC and the Department of Social Services’ communications channels, and successful organisations will have the opportunity to showcase their work at the next national SNAICC Conference in 2021.
