The voice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families will be instrumental in the development of a new national strategy that will ensure their children have the opportunities for the best start in life.
The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Early Childhood Strategy will support children to grow up happy, healthy, strong and thriving in their early years by providing a long-term, re-focused approach to policy and investment. The National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA), in partnership with SNAICC – National Voice for our Children, are working to develop the Strategy.
The co-design process has opened, and we need your advice to ensure the Strategy meaningfully reflects the views, experiences and expertise of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, service delivery organisations and other key experts. An extensive engagement process is underway to give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, communities and caregivers a strong voice in developing the early childhood strategy.
SNAICC is partnering with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community organisations to work closely with children and families about ways to help our young children to stay strong in culture, and be happy, healthy, safe, and ready for school.
