The first SNAICC News newsletter for 2015 covers the early responses from Indigenous and community services organisations to the Australian Government’s funding announcement under the Indigenous Advancement Strategy, as well as assessing how the Productivity Commission’s report on child care may impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families.
The March 2015 edition of SNAICC News also looks at the incredible work of two Aboriginal Child and Family Centres (ACFCs): Ningkuwum-Ngamayuwu ACFC at Halls Creek, WA and Cullunghutti ACFC at Nowra, NSW.
The 36-page newsletter also covers the 2014 annual report from National Children’s Commissioner Megan Mitchell and the Productivity Commission’s latest Report on Government Services, which revealed that almost 15,000 Aboriginal and Torres Islander children were in out-of-home care in June 2014.
The newsletter also looks at some great new resources that have become available to assist early years educators, family violence workers, trauma practitioners and others working with our children and families.
