SNAICC has recently sent out 80 postcards to most of the 337 BBF services and 38 ACFCs. These postcards call for 10 years commitment to adequate funding for integrated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and family services.
All community members are encouraged to write a message of support for their service outlining, for example, why the service is important and unique, what is its value in the community, or even put on a picture that shows us the importance of the service, and to send the postcards back to SNAICC.
These postcards are designed to build momentum and visibility of the issue, and to support communities to present their voice directly.
The postcards will be gathered all together and will be presented to key Ministers and hopefully the Prime Minister with a more consolidated proposal.
The messages we have received on the postcards so far present a powerful case for the services. Keep the postcards coming! And let us know if you need some more. Any other people or organisations that would like to complete the postcards, please let us know!
